Why cut a tree down when it can be easily and efficiently transplanted?
I re-present to you, the Dutchman Industries’ Dutchman Tree Spade.
In the early 1970’s, Dutchmaster commenced the design, development, and manufacturing of the “Dutchman’s Tree Spade”. Continual design upgrades over the past two decades have resulted in a number of models that can deal with trees of all calipers while maintaining our reputation for efficiency and dependability. The Dutchman Industries Inc. has evolved into a 1600+ acre wholesale nursery distribution center. Their nursery offers a wide variety of deciduous and coniferous plants.

Above is a video on the fundamentals of permaculture via (Permaculture Fundamentals 101).
Take a look a what permaculture means to our species as we make our footprint on the earth.
A quick dive in, permaculture is:
A “holistic design” system for creating sustainable human settlements, food productions systems as well as preserving and extending natural ecosystems.
It is a movement concerned with sustainable, environmentally sound land use, and the building of stable communities through the harmonious interrelationship of humans, plants, animals and the Earth.
Here are the 3 Ethics of Permaculture:
Care of the Earth: Taking care of the planet that sustains and nourishes us. The earth gives us what we need. In turn, we need to treat it with consideration and respect.
Care of People: Meeting people’s needs so that they can enjoy a good quality of life, fulfill their potential and without damaging the planet.
Share the Surplus: Originally “set limits to population and consumption,” now refined and reworded. Don’t use more than you need or what the planet’s systems can sustain. This includes the philosophy of reduce, reuse, recycle.
Food For Thought:
How would permaculture benefit from looking at modern technologies which are not only ecologically conscious (biodegradable items, vertical farming etc.) but also those involved in conservation and restoration (cleaning drones and magnetics) as well as the earth’s fundamental capabilities to sustain and revive (meal worms, mushrooms, lichen etc.)?
