There was a fine article in the September/October 2010 Tree Farmer Magazine about Robert and Linnea and their Tree Farm.  They were the 2009 Outstanding North Central Regional Tree Farmers of the year and finalists for the National Tree Farmer Award.  In the article, Robert, our OneWithWood, references the Forestry Forum, and I quote," In 2002, he was an early participant online on the Forestry Forum <www.forestryforum.com>, where he is known as OneWithWood.  He has chronicled his tree farm activities on the sawmilling and milling message board, "Time to Stop Being a Wannabe"."

If you are a member of the Tree Farm System and a suscriber to the Tree Farmer Magazine, check it out.

Here is another nice quote at the end of the article, "Brianna, a fifth-grader at Edgewood Intermediate School, summed it up in a letter after her class visited the Good-Goodling Woods: "Dear Mr. Woodling, you have changed a group of kids.  You have changed our points of view and our feelings for nature.  I am sure you could see in our faces the wonder that we all shared.  Thank you for spending time to educate us"."

Robert, I want to thank you too.

I tried to post a link to the article from the Tree Farm website, but it looks like that it is not in the archives yet.

I have had the privilege of visiting OweWithWood's tree farm. 8)  His trees are friendly and did not bite my hand.
