Recently, the Monastery of the Holy Spirit hired a natural forest management service to clear out trees that had been felled by a tornado on the monastery land — land that has been set aside for a green cemetary. True to the community’s commitment to manage the land in as sustainable a way as possible, they brought in a team that uses Suffolk workhorses to remove the timber, thereby minimizing the collateral damage to the forest. A local news station ran a segment on this, and here’s a link to the video: www.11alive.com/video/default.aspx?aid=103612&storyid=125503
