There are sections here in Pa that cross wide parts of farm country. They lack trees and my enthusiasm to hike these sections. (IMO) What is involved in a occational planting of local trees. Oak or Pine or perhaps a Plum, Apple, Apricot, or grape vine along these sections to brighten them up a little? This would allow an occational hiker to score some fruit or fun.
Interested to hear your take on this idea - doesn't mean I am going to do it, I do have access to some seeds and markers.
