Use Local Materials: Maple Harvest Video
One of the local materials we will be using in our home is maple harvested from Middlebury College owned forests for our flooring. Last fall, team member Ari Lattanzi went out into the woods with Steve Webber the Middlebury College forester to learn first hand how to harvest maple trees for our project. She also had a chance to learn about the role forestry can play in maintaining a healthy natural environment. Thanks to Miriam Nielsen and Otto Pierce for compiling this great video about the experience.
