Hey, you beasts of the woods, Gustavo asked me to estimate the number of trees uprooted. Obviously I couldn’t count every one, but based on a couple of typical piles and extrapolation for the littlest saplings, I’d say 125 glossy privet (Ligustrum lucidum) is a reasonable estimate. We also uprooted two Chinese pistache (Pistacia chinensis). Oh, and we scattered about 750 mountain laurel seeds (Dermatophyllum secundiflorum) to supplement the native seed bank.
