It's clear to me that we have a climate crisis and that we are destroying our environment. We need to communicate in a way that will carry this message to all people of our planet--sharing and inspiring solutions. What did you do today?

Monday, 29-December-2014 - Veghel - Hired by Veghel Township and using state-of-the-art logging equipment, Van Weert Rondhout BV was clearing tall popular trees from Geerbos woods across from our housing area. According to Van Weert, this was to give shorter oak trees a better chance to grow. I was sad to see these tall trees go. When we moved here 18 years ago, we were happy to be situated near a stand of tall trees. In recent years, many these populars have been harvested to comply with a European subsidy obtained more than 25 years ago. pics (46)
I was born in 1949. We lived by a big hickory tree, near a creek on a corner of my grandpa's farm in Amelith, a church community five miles from the edge Bay City, Michigan, USA. I often wondered if this tree was standing when my ancestors Christina Barbara Feinauer and Johann Georg Weiss arrived here from Bavaria one hundred years earlier. See my "Big Hickory Tree" post in this blog.
