Here are a few more images of the main meadow cleared of autumn olive, multiflora rose, and most of the forest invasion. we left scattered shrubs, future “shade” trees, and evergreen cover for the birds.
Two neighbor/friends and I worked hard this last couple of weeks on invasive plant control. One of them sprayed, and sprayed, and sprayed and the fields are now full of skeletons. Another brought his log skidder and pushed skeletons, giant autumn olives, unwanted trees, and sprouting trees off the meadows. The view from the throne rock is now about 45 degrees wider. More pictures to follow.
The first ladyslipper orchids are poking shoots through the forest floor today.
