As a certified arborist, Rich Del Carlo spends much of his life up in the trees and from this rather unusual perspective, he shares with us his birds eye view of changes he is seeing in our local balance with nature.
Rich is also one of the area’s most ardent bird watchers and recently coordinated the Audubon Society’s annual Christmas bird count for the region. This event has been going on nationally for over one hundred years and clearly tracks the changes in bird populations and migrations.
Many things affect the balance of man and nature but the most important thing we can do as individuals is to become aware of our personal relationship to our surroundings. Our choices can begin in our own homes with the flowers we plant, how we use water or the chemicals we buy. Everyone can make a difference in creating balance.
