Farming Alder
by Donna Hamilton Baptista


April 4, 2005

John Stewart is right on the money! Alder is fast growing. Why not have an Alder tree farm? Sometimes the answer can be right in front of you (the corporations), but you can't see past your (their) nose. Lowe's Hardware is selling kitchen cabinets made from Alder. Alder is used in carving. I wanted Alder for interior window trim - had to get it from Canada. Since you work with Alder - how do you split it?
