A good idea. Green ideas always seem the best don't they.

Makes sense, just like living yards with vegetable gardens, instead of just grass that people are demanding be allowed:).

I like good news, it's a relief!

Thank you, Cal

This is a great idea. The article doesn't give the name of the type of tree but it doesn't sound like anything that grows in our Northern climate. I wonder what a practical way to adapt this idea would be.
