About

I am a naturalist raised by naturalists.  I am also 1/4 Apache and and Treeseed is my earned name, while Rebecca is my birth name.

Last year I bought 5 acres of pinyon-juniper forest on the side of a mountain in Santa Fe County, New Mexico.  I am fulfilling a lifetime dream of a cabin in the mountains and a food forest that will feed me and local wildlife.  I want to share this new phase of my life with others that might be interested.

  1. What a wondrous thing to do Rebecca! It’s a pleasure to meet you. Hugs!

    • Hi Teague!
      Thanks for coming to visit. I am having a good life on my property and see an increase in wildlife already. I am seeing apex species, which indicates healthy mix of plants as a base. This year I want to see if I can really feed myself and others without stressing wildlife and without irrigation.

  2. I am so happy you visited my website as it brought me here to yours.
    So looking forward to following your dream come true of your rural lifestyle.
    All my very best to you.

    • Dillon Cruz!
      I just visited your wonderful article about fungal remediation. I appreciate your visit. I saw Chicken of the Woods mushrooms on my property, to my great excitement. I did not eat them, just one little community. I learned afterward that if growing on my pinyon pines and Junipers they can be toxic… oops. I ordered books by Paul Stamets to learn more about delicious edible fungi. Thank you.

    I was born and raised in Albuquerque and was so excited to finally find a blog that was closer to us ( colorado) and to also find out you share my interest in plants was amazing! I have been watching the fire lines hoping that they are not getting closer to you. Prayers!

    • Hi Sarah,
      Nice to meet another plant person. The fire seems to be pushing more East-West right now, but they don’t have it under control yet. A bit nerve wracking. Welcome to my blog!
