A Delivery from Musser Forests, Inc.

A new tree project is now underway at my Bedford, New York farm.

Over the weekend, a delivery of more than 15-boxes arrived filled with hundreds of bare-root tree seedlings and other young shrubs. I try to plant as many trees as I can every year. Trees are extremely important to our environment - they are the world’s single largest source of breathable oxygen, they absorb carbon dioxide and potentially harmful gasses, and they create an ecosystem to provide needed habitat and food for birds and other animals. Some of the specimens will be added to my gardens. Many will be potted temporarily while their root systems develop, and a lot of young trees will be planted directly into the ground back in the woodlands of my farm, where they will thrive under forest cover.
