Wm. J. Carpenter Family Update

Architect Wm. J. Carpenter’s grandaughter Dr. Lynn Carpenter has retired from University of California Irvine and is now continuing to manage her tree farm in Costa Rica.  She and her sister Nancy Adrian are researching the reforestation of barren rain forest lands, and with great success.  They harvested the first crop of mature trees last year, after less than 20 years since planting. The trees are very much like the Southern long leaf pine which Grandfather used so much in his Florida buildings.  Read more about this very worthwhile project at http://www.rainprogram.org/. It is an informative web site and they will appreciate your interest.
