Making Tree Stakes

Recycling and repurposing as many natural resources as possible is a big priority here at my Bedford, New York farm.

We always save whatever materials we can in case they can be used at a later time - especially wood. Last year, Mauricio Guevara, a skilled lumberer, master woodworker, and owner of New England Antique Lumber Inc., in nearby Mount Kisco, set up his portable sawmill, and made some beautiful floor boards and planks out of felled trees here at the farm. Most of the wood can be used for future building projects, but some of it is used for making stakes to support all my young, developing trees.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
