Nice to see someone out doing it. Fertile ground ; we would not see that kind of deciduous regeneration here so fast. I copiced some willow and poplar the first few years but It was too hard to use in the wood stove maybe if I used a cookstove. Would be nice to see it in summer. He mentions a realistic timeframe of 10 years.
Thanks for the link...

If its important then try something, fail, disect, learn from it, try again, and again and again until it kills you or you succeed.

Note from RE



Our old Collapse Blogging friend Jason Heppenstall (aka "Hepp") has gone into the Video Production Bizness, starting off with a Tour of his  Woodland Property in Cornwall, UK.  Hepp has been working hard on the property since he acquired it around 5 years ago when he decided to take his family off grid as much as was reasonably possible, leaving his job in Denmark and moving back to his native shores of Jolly Old England.



So far things seem to be coming along swimmingly well there, and he has good and realistic plans for future development which you will hear about in the video.  We look forward to future installments of his video series on Doomsteading in the UK.  Along with our own Doomsteaders Eddie in Texas, David in Canada and Palloy in the Tropical Rainforest, you can find many good hints for getting a good Doomstead set up here on the Doomstead Diner.  You will find most of the hints and discussions inside the Diner Forum on the Doomsteading forum and the SUN Forum.  Come join us for a Collapse Meal as we prepare for the End of the Age of Oil.
