Many years ago I “saved” many trees during the construction of my forested equine estate in Killigworth. Now, I would like to selectively harvest timbers from my horse farm in the forest and to build a timber frame barn for my neighbors at Wade Farms in Bloomfield. Some of my standing timber is not suited for structural timber, and I hope that I am able to proceed with additional plans to construct a radio telemetry research facility with horses, canids, homing pigeons, vehicles and drones, and perhaps with the lawful obtainment of an ayas; for three dimensional telemetry in a static silvicultural forest map of the remaining trees and the existing structures on the farm and within a static and dynamic GIS system.
Timber donations to a Wade Farms agronomy initiative that are made by myself, and by others who can allocate a timber or lumber tree, will likely also require predominantly volunteer labor to add to the economy of the venture towards organic farming in Bloomfield, Connecticut.
However, fasteners, tools, machinery, law, and law enforcement will remain expenses and all levels of participation are necessary for the betterment of organic farming and silviculture in Connecticut.
Organic farming in Connecticut is essential and Wade Farms in Bloomfield is a strategic first barn raising location.
Silviculture for carpentry, agronomy, research and the future of agriculture in Connecticut can facilitate ecologically sound anthropocentric land use. It has been over a half century since the 1956 Superhighway and National Defense Act relocated many very significant aspects of Connecticut Agriculture to “greener pastures”. More profoundly, it has been hundreds of years since the extirpation of what might be seen as the entirety of an applied Native American fire ecology and anthropocentric disturbance ecology biometric. And, today; Connecticut ecology faces the absence of indigenous people and their impacts on the land, and we as a society have chance to implement a new synthesis of at least the past 2000 years of Connecticut ecology in the context of anthropocentric habitation and the wise use of the land and the natural resources here for harvest and extraction.
Contemporaneous to the politic of the past 3-4 decades, the invention of environmentalism at the time of earth day followed the Exodus of many farmers. Today, environmentalism continues it’s steady progress towards becoming a rational and valid science. Organic Farming in Connecticut is therefore now a real possibility.
Please consider your participation in the carpentry and raising.
