  1. I know it sounds like a great idea but how then does the forest renew itself if there is no food for it? The compost from leaves etc are a necessary part of the forest ecology, not only providing food for the trees but the microorganisms that flourish there. I don’t understand how you can have a healthy forest without composting plant matter from the trees.
