We live on a small 9.5 acre hobby farm with about a 5 acre pasture. Instead of dedicating the pasture to clover, we are planting trees and shrubs in areas that are otherwise not much use. We are planting 3 Tillia Americana trees, 20 hazelnut trees, and 25 button bushes. We also planted some blackhaw, false indigo, and spice bush. All of these were said to be good for bees. We got everything except the tillia (basswood trees) from the Missouri Conservation department really cheap. It will take a few years for them to be beneficial, but we have to start somewhere. Besides, as the Greeks said, a society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in. And I am not that old.
