Tony Santoro’s Guide to Illegal Tree-Planting

My early tree nursery efforts were in part motivated by this lovingly subversive solution to the very good problem of “I have too many trees – what do I do with them!?” Agroforestry efforts and community find all kinds of uses for trees, including forest gardens in urban areas

This video offers a very-urban forestry wisdom walk hosted by the Department of Unauthorized Forestry. I presume the agency is led by songbirds or squirrels. Humans can apparently contribute.

Trigger warning: Tony curses lots and calls some of the trees bastards. But I think he means it as a term of endearment – the trees seem okay with it.

Where’s your local forest garden?!

What do you think?
