In His Own Words
The land that I live on is comprised of reclaimed Landfill. The Land is owned by a manufactured homepark, and no gas- or diesel-powered equipment can be used in the forest, with the lone exception being chainsaws in the event of fallen trees becoming a hazard. 
Everything used in the forest was manual in
nature. The Gas-powered weed eater was only used on the upper deck lawn area.

Multiple Missions



One of the motivating factors in this project for Monte was to get in better shape.



After being diagnosed with early diabetes. Monte set out to reverse his diagnosis by starting this project.



After years of viewing the tangled weeds that had overtaken the beautiful forest. Monte set out to improve the view from his deck.


The Enviroment

Trees overtaken by ivy or blackberries are deprived of the proper water and nutrients. Monte set out to help the forest breathe.


Set the Example

Monte wanted to show the world what the power of determination mixed with passion and perseverance can accomplish in a short amount of time.
