Ecological Agriculture / Reusing Utility Poles

りんご園にそびえたつ大きな木柱。

Big wooden poles rising in apple gardens.

 

強風からりんごを守る防風網の支柱だったり、りんごの木を支えるワイヤーを結ぶために使われています。

 

Some are used as a windbreak for protecting apples from strong winds and others are used to connect wires that support apple trees.

木柱をよく見ると何やら文字と数字が。これ実は電柱。今はコンクリート製の電柱がほとんどですが、昔の電柱は木製でした。

 

When you look closely at wooden pillars, there are some characters and numbers. Those pillars had been actually used as telephone poles. Most utility poles are nowadays made of concrete though, electric poles had been made of wood in the old days.

 

コンクリート製の電柱に更新するとき、不要になった木柱をこのように再利用しているのです。

 

When updating them to the utility poles made of concrete, we have reused unnecessary wooden pillars like those.

 

使わなくなったら捨てるではなく、別の用途で再利用する。ものを大切にする日本らしい知恵です。

 

Do not throw it away when you do not need it anymore; but reuse it for another purpose. It seems Japanese wisdom who put values things.
