If You Haven't Already Done So, Go Outside And Hug Your Red Bay Trees, Because They Are Doomed.
|Today, the first day of 2015, I cut that tree down.|
The wood will all be burned in our fire pit, one small and mostly meaningless gesture to ... well, to at LEAST NOT spread it.
The one thing we all want to do is not transport cut Red Bay ANYWHERE.
Sounds corny to say it, but you know you're thinking it ... "It's all connected."
Not a very cheery New Years message, I know.
Ever the optimist, I'm hoping that somewhere in the millions of Red Bay seedlings pushing up into a dangerous new world, there may be a few with just the right DNA bouillabaisse to fight back with a bit of good ol'fashioned genetic resistance.
Time will tell, and on December 31, 2015, I will post an update of the Red Bay situation here at PFHQ.
