Ecological Agriculture / Reusing Utility Poles


Ecological Agriculture / Reusing Utility Poles


Big wooden poles rising in apple gardens.




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



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.




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




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.
