Over the past six months or so I have been playing around with various ways to take our woodland forward and break away from the reliance on ornamental foliage sales we currently have. I've posted various thoughts on our woodland blog.

Finally, after a few wet days*, I have boiled the vision and plan down into half a dozen pages. It's not finished yet, and I'm sure it will end up as a live, evolving document. But it sets the broad direction.

It won't take much to figure out that I have been inspired by some of the proponents of food-forestry, woody agriculture, etc, and I hope I've set a direction that will take us and the woodland into a post-peak, energy-descent future.

I'd love any feedback if anyone wants to take a look.

(* I don't want to trash the wet ground. That's my excuse for not doing any actual work in the woodland when it's p**ing down, but sitting at the computer instead!)

Very wise. You can wait months for it to be either dry or frozen so you can get in and out without making a mess or getting stuck.
I'll give your blog a look when I get a moment. Trying to get ready for "sugaring" (making maple syrup) at the moment. 5 inches of snow today on top of the two feet on the ground. Might have to tap on snow shoes but rain is predicted this weekend.
