This website began in August 2020, after the idea had some years to germinate, with the intent of sharing simple visions and inspiration for meeting basic needs with trees and of sharing services I offer to empower that cause. Collaboration is encouraged – if you would like to contribute to this website, use its contents elsewhere, or have content from elsewhere to share on this website, please reach out. “If this is your work too, we work together. With thanks”

This website emerges from a temperate forest context and is focused on that context, but ‘trees for basic needs‘ is a much broader reality. Trees exist and support human life on all continents that can sustain humans without fossil fuels.

This website finds its origins alongside a low-tech tree crop propagation, planting, and processing project in the Eastern Great Lakes Lowlands and the Lower Susquehanna. That nuttery project offers nursery products and other agroforestry services (based near Reading, PA, and Syracuse, NY). This website is hosted in support of that tree enterprise and in reciprocity for the gifts of trees, with no advertising or copyrighted content.

May the force of forest succession be with you.
