Longtime rock musician also a steward of the environment

As Mick Jagger performed a powerful version of "Angie" last week on stage in Canada, the beautiful, melodic piano lines weaving through the song were deftly being played by The Rolling Stones' musical director and keyboard player Chuck Leavell.

He's been with the band 37 years and has also played with musical legends Eric Clapton, George Harrison, the Allman Brothers, John Mayer and countless others.

Leavell's passion for music is accompanied by a life spent as a steward of the environmen

Go India!!!

Planting trees is a hoot, I think.  I really enjoy starting various oaks and planting them.  My Bur Oaks from the famous VT tree are doing great - planted in 2012 from 2011 nuts, they are now over 10 feet.  The huge White Oak acorns I collected in western KY did not fare so well.  Most of the ~ two dozen acorns sprouted over the winter and I was ecstatic, but I planted them in individual pots, leaving them on the deck of an outbuilding, and the resident chipmunk got all but 2.  Those 2 are doing fine.

Go plant a tree!!!!

They're up here in the mountains now, too. We just discovered them last year in the area I work in.

Roanoke city started treating their Ash street trees a few years ago.
They should have saved their money to buy a new chipper. All are dead or dying.

Interesting read!

Indeed it is.  I wish I could find a link to an 800+ page document produced by the USGS in the late 1800s near the turn of the century regarding the environmental conditions in NC. It has been 7 years since reading the document, but in its pages, stories of out of control raging forest fires stemming from wild weather, and poor land management were unforgettable.  Between the fires, deforestation, erosion, nasty hurricanes, general despair, some thought the world was coming to an end.
