I am a tree service contractor based in Sonoma County, California. As in many areas of California and in Mediterranean climates around the world, forest fires are a tremendous threat to soils, forest canopy coverage and human safety. I believe the best way to manage our forested landscape is through hand crews and light equipment while maintaining organic material on site, rather than heavy machinery with biomass harvesting or fire to reduce fuel loads. So far as I know I am the first person to create and implement this kind of appropriate technology for forest management and I would like to show off my equipment so that others may copy me. This is my first video, others will be following soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2LW-SXSLrI I hope this thread leads to discussion, I am new to studying permaculture and I look forward to connecting with like minded people.
