"The very best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." - Chinese Proverb

Some notes from our farm located near Centuria Wisconsin USA:

Since 1998 we've been working to re-forest an 80 acre dairy farm located in North-West Wisconsin. All the work has been done by family and friends.

Nearly all the hardwood trees have come from seed that we have collected and processed ourselves. Much of this seed was scattered or planted at the farm but a good deal was cultivated in back-yard nurseries to protect the young trees until they can compete 'in the field'. After one or two years in these nurseries, we transplant them to the farm.

We have learned much during this experience and we are continually learning more. We have had many successes and many failures but we consider it an honor and a privilege to spend our time and energy making the world (and the air) better for our children.
