Hello! I am new to this forum. Thank you for all the wonderful advice and discussion that is here. I am learning lots. Would you have an idea what to do with large numbers of pine trees on a property that we will convert to permaculture? There are thousands and thousands and thousands of them, around every paddock, creek, and dam - even around the house. I keep repeating that the problem must be the solution, but I haven't got much further than firewood to power the house (which isn't very atmosphere friendly) and cut into small logs to put around garden beds. It's a tricky problem, because you can't grow much with a pine tree nearby. And also there's not much you can do with pine wood unless it's been treated, and this is polluting. What do you suggest?
