Thinning the Woods


The land we live on was once farmland. Down closer to the road you can find the old springhouse and the chimney for the house. When we got the land nearly thirty years ago there were just a few trees and a lot of low growth. Some of the slopes were covered in wild strawberries. There were a lot of wild blackberry brambles. Now there are quite of few trees and a lot of bushy undergrowth. With the help of Joe the Tree Guy we are clearing out enough of the undergrowth and dead wood to be able to enjoy the lower two acres and to get access to our two little mountain streams!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
