Today, at 1, we and the folks from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative are trying to break a world record for the most trees planted in one hour. We're one of 30 crews across the US and Canada who are trying to break this record. We'll each get 50 trees and need to get them in the ground before the hour is over. It's doable, though the soil up here at this old strip mine in Moshannon State Forest is hard as a rock! Might take a bit of elbow grease to get them all in the ground by the time limit. Wish me luck!Edit: Final tally- 45 planters - 3957!</p>
And Now for Something Completely Different...
