eco project



Still enjoying the free planter at the edge of the driveway.

I guess we could look at this as a giant eco project, the 3 Rs at work - reduce, reuse, recycle. The wind reduced the big tree, the tree company reduced it some more, the wood was reused to heat the house, and the stump recycled into a free planter.

Well I guess it was not exactly free, after paying the tree company to remove the tree and save the house... but resulting in lots of good firewood in exchange, so maybe we came out even... and a free planter.

But then there is the tractor and chain saw, and the log splitter. Labor you really can't charge for. This eco is good for the recycling but it does not stand for "economy". LOL!!

But the "ecology" aspects turned out quite beautiful.

Love the planter! My cousin made a cute bird bath by pouring cement on top of a stump.
