Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - June 13, 27, 2018 - July 11, 2018 - Wednesday Events

Just a quick update on the midweek C4C sessions at David and Celia's and a reminder about future events.  With the summer heat at the firewood landing, we've been solving more of society's problems through jabberjaw-ing and stacking less firewood!  But that really is the fun of C4C....raise some money for a good cause and have some laughs in the process. Greg, Bill, David, Keith, Jim, others, and I have been sharing donuts and sawdust on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.  Start…See More

Slash and squirt control of Ailanthus

I have 20-30 ailanthus trees on my property in the 4-6 inch diameter range.  What specific herbicide and concentration should I use for slash and squirt?  Can you recommend a place where it can be purchased in small quantities?  Thanks. See More

Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - May 9, 2018 - New Gear at the Landing!

The NYFOA C4C Team operates like a well-oiled machine and it just acquired a new....well-oiled machine!  With special thanks to Runnings - Brockport and John Schumacher, C4C purchased a brand new log splitter complete with Kohler engine.  Runnings gave a big discount and had its team assemble and prepare the splitter for C4C's service. 

NYFOA's Greg Lessord was key to this acquisition and mentions, "It's a Black Diamond 25-ton vertical and horizontal splitter on a tow-behind…
