tvoivozhd---trees are a farmers and the worlds best friend---stories of 
restoring soil, watertable, rainfall, wildlife, local farm economies are 
numerous.

Every small (or big) farmer should  be a tree-planter---in part for the 
recited benefits, in part for a savings account for their children.   
Something they can draw on after thirty or more years, depending on 
soil, rainfall and temperature.  It isn't in the archives, too long ago, 
but perhaps you will remember my long-ago post entitled "Trash to 
Treasure"---buying almost-wasteland at near-free prices, and planting 
valuable tree species (a  variety, not a monoculture)
