2/16/09 Tree Planting Update

Everything's coming up ... pine trees!

February may seem too early to be thinking about planting season, especially given the severity of winter around here, but tree plantings require a lot of advance planning, so ... 'tis the season. :)

Berberville is planning a festival for the International Day of the Tree, to be held (probably coincidentally) on the Spring Equinox. It will feature the planting of hundreds of trees, as well as talks from locally important people, student skits, and whatever else the students can think of. :)

Another local village has asked me to help them plan a tree planting as well, so I'm doubly excited!

Due to our high altitude and long winters, we're focusing on pine trees and cypress trees. I'm planning to visit the nursery soon; I'll post pictures.
