Jamin Uticone of Swamp Road Baskets works with the trees in his swamp to make a living as a basket weaver. In this episode I follow Jamin for a few days as he journeys from tree to pack basket using the incredible flexible and versatile wood of the black ash tree. He selects trees that show signs that they may soon begin to rot and leaves the big healthy trees to seed out the next generation of black ash in his woods. His talent as a basket weaver allows him to make his years work of seventy baskets from just one or two trees a year.
