This winter we had several wind storms that took down some old pine trees. Jack has spent weeks chain-sawing fallen trees to provide firewood to heat our house. Even the tree tops and pine needles get used, as these are tasty treats for the goats. The goats get a supplement of pine branches daily. Those pine needles become manure, or "goat berries" as we call them, which then becomes fertilizer for house plants. So you see, nothing goes to waste.
