Living Fences

Certain plants will quickly take root if a fresh stick is placed in the ground. String a few strands of wire and you can create a living fence. These fences, popular in Costa Rica, are not only less work to build than conventional fences, but they create corridors for migrating birds and other animals in deforested land. Note the freshly cut poles destined to become new fencing.
