hazelnut-
Your final article will be terrific based on what I've read here. Not only do you take us, the reader, into the structure of a decidious forest and explain it, but then further describe by example, your experieces of living in one. Fascinating reading!

Keep up the good work. I hope you consider expanding some of the subjects discussed in your article (in additional articles)....the syrup collecting and making syrup, your family farm. Ya, know how things were done back then. And of course more of the permaculture/edible forest thing.

Thanks, Jenny. I know dealing with a Flood and Food Forest at the same time may have required some extraordinary effort! Thanks for your help.

I'm going to ask anyone interested in Great Lakes Forests: In this case logging to read Hazelnut's Featured Article and click on the log roll link to give some insight to how the Michigan Forest Products helped build this country; From ships to trains and of course shelter.

When I was a kid there was a fictional character called Paul Bunyan; It was a childhood favorite read of mine and probably influenced me to enjoy reading.

As an interesting side note; The lumber logged from 1860-1870 was equal to if not surpassing the Gold Rush that started in San Fransisco in 1849-1859
