Quick Post Before a More Detailed Update...

Seems like I've abandonned this blog within the last few months. If I was extremely busy and working in isolated camps (two three weeks stints in fly-in camps without getting out of the bush) during the season, I had plenty of time since I've returned home in early September. The problem is, I really didn't want to talk about anything planting.

Now, it seems I can get some perspective again and I should post lots of pictures and stories about my 2009 experience, and I should get on this as soon as I can. Until then, here's a great music video of the Tree Planter's Waltz by Smoky Tiger, featuring Baba Brinkman and Emily Ray, inspired by the Log Driver's Waltz by John Weldon and sung by Eunice Macauley. The footage at the beginning is from a 1977 documentary called "Do it with joy" following Dirk Brinkman's crew, planting trees with hoedads.



Will reconnect soon...

That is probably the best planting video I've ever seen! Great blog, I posted some pictures of my season at href="http://livinglifeoutdoors.com/category/tree-planting

Planting bare-rooted trees is a little different as there is no soil surrounding the roots. Most importantly, the time between purchase and planting is a more critical issue.
