We have begun in earnest to mill the trees we were required to destroy and form them into lumber for the new home. Here, several hickory trees are milled on site for flooring in two of the upstairs bedrooms. In all, there were close to 80 trees that were harvested for the construction of our new home. For many of the trees, we will continue to enjoy them in a new form. After we are finished building, we will replant at least 50 new trees and rebuild and manage the forest for the long term.
