Reclaiming the Land

While the practice of mountain top removal and strip mining can be scarring to the land we were surprised to learn how resilient the land can be and how quickly new growth can occur. We spent time in an orchard that has been planted in one of these reclamation projects. Sadly this has created new problems such as various diseases that can attack the different fruits. We spent some time removing diseases peaches from one part of this orchard.
