Here is a neat poster...Plains Farms Need Trees. This was part of the Prairie States Forestry Project that was started by President Roosevelt in 1935 to help fight against the severe erosion that occurred during the period of the great Dust Bowl. For those around the world unfamiliar with this period of US history, CLICK HERE for the wiki entry.
Over 200 million tree seedlings were planted during this time. I love the caption at the bottom of the post that says trees "...contribute to human comfort and happiness". Truer words were never spoken. It actually reminds us that there are a few open spaces along fence lines at the farm where we need to plant a few more trees. Trees are always a good thing.
More later this afternoon, we're rainy and cold again. Sigh.
