Clarke on Science
* First law: When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
* Second law: The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
* Third law: Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Arthur C. Clarke

Typical Pine

The edge were tree meets field creates a haven for all sorts of critters.

Redosier Dogwood

This is the native dogwood, with a dark crimson bark. Moderately dark leaves, glorious dark red purple fall colour.

In winter the red bark adds colour to a landscape that badly needs it.

Prune to make bushy, or take the bushhog over it every 3-4 years.

Good shelterbelt species for damp areas.

Good deer distractant. (The deer can eat it instead of your garden.)

White berries are of interest to birds. Non poisonous, but don't have much taste.
