The cheapest, greenest energy is the energy you avoid using in the first place. So the priority has to be on efficiency first like ben Franklin said many years ago. I can honestly say I have planted more trees in my lifetime than I have cut down and that can help make wood burning more sustainable at least where I live in the country.

I was great, It kept the house warm. I can recall when Dad would ask the people around our neigbourhood if they had any trees that they would like to have cut down. Many have. We save a lot of money. A lot of work but worth it. I recall when Dad had extra money. Dad bought a ton of coal. That pile of Coal lasted us for a while. Two in half of shovel’s lasted us for a 3/4 of the day. Coal become expensive. Many of the farmers had conserved their trees. Dad was getting older. Dad bought a gas furnace. I too have gas. Gas furnaces are not that great. Gas furnaces just run with very little heat.

Today the resources are dwindling. The cost is rising. We as humans are accountable for much of the waste. I like our neighbour. He too heats his house with wood. I recall he had planted 4 ash trees. This was in the 70’s The trees grew rapidly. He cut them down and replanted. He had a couple of years for his stove.

The trees that he replanted have quickly grown. He has no intent of cutting them dowm. I admire him for that. At least we have a fair amount of shade. That helps.

We planted dozen trees in the backyard. Mostly Red Maple. These are slow growing. The one soft Maple grew on its own. It grew up rapidly. It must be twenty feet. Our neighbour in the back of us had planted 4 acres of spruce trees. They are taller then me.

It is never too late to plant after cutting one tree down. Trees are a renewable source and the more we can plant within small areas and it might be worth it.

Can any one recall when pbs had programs about the environment. I can recall scientist requesting the governmnet to have trees planted along the roadside etc. The governments said no. Whenever I travel on an highway many trees could have been planted. There is a farmer in an another county had planted about 80 trees along that stretch of his property. This farmer was well in is 70’s If this guy could do it why can’t the rest of the population not do it? That means farmers as well.

We have trees in front of our property and the rear. If I have some extra money I will plant more.

It is not to late to save the earth. When many of the trees that grow old we can use for wood stoves etc. Replant again for what has been cut down. There are trees that grow quickly.

Whats the answer? It is always about about the cost. Yet our government’s have tons of money for corporations and the military. When it becomes an environmental issue it usually is shelved.

If we do not save the earth who will? Right after we destroy ourselves.
