the forest farmer

Who knew that there is a forest farm in Nebraska?! This video is about Richard Gilbert, a biologist who works at the  Charles Bessey Tree Nursery in Halsey, Nebraska. His mission is to preserve and repopulate national forests in the Rockies. When disaster strikes, Gilbert’s seasonal labors in raising trees for the repopulating mission go to good use. It is really amazing to see the hard work they do in order to help forests recover from a devastating disaster!
