Morning members received a presentation from Joel Lameraux with Get R Cut tree service.  Joel shared information on BioChar, a soil compound derived from Terra Preta, a region in the Amazon where the richest soil in the world is located.  BioChar helps plants, trees, and grass help retain water and nutrients.  Individuals can contact Get R Cut if they are interested in scheduling an application.
