Geodesic Dome Greenhouse - quick update

A quick update on the Geodesic Dome Greenhouse project. The site clearing is nearly done. The hardwoods will be used as firewood. Some of the pines will be cut into lumber while the rest will be ground-up and used as ground cover and erosion control. Next step, stump removal and then the foundation!
Site before clearing trees.
Site after clearing the majority of the trees.

130 +/- year-old tree. Each tack is 10 years. Where were you in 1880?

it is sad but this tree was already half dead and had rot down it's trunk....probably only had a few years left.
