Out of the Woods I
Over the past few years I have noticed more and more real estate and development signs on heavily forested acreages; beautiful nature marred by man-made signs that signal its demise. Soon it will be filled with construction, all the trees gone. The shrinking of green space, over-development, and loss of natural habitat has been on my mind and I’m deeply influenced by the acreage I recently moved onto and realize how important it is to be in real nature from time to time.
