"That is an interesting question.  I don't think anyone truly knows what cause trees to lose their leaves in the winter, but it is generally explained as a way for the tree to save nutrients that would be wasted if they were being sent to…"

Ely McLaughlin replied to Bill Pontius's discussion 480a disqualification after EAB
"I can't think of much else you could do that you aren't already.  The one thing I might try is to do a formal survey of the regeneration.  You say you have plenty of saplings in some parts of the stand, but none in others. …"

"I don't live in New York State, but researching forest tax laws is a bit of a hobby of mine, so I took the time to look up the 480a program.  It appears that density can be measured in one of two ways.  The first, is basal area of the…"

Profile Information

How many acres of woodland do you own or annually manage?
Please describe, with two or three sentences, why you are interested in woodlot ecology and management. Your answer helps us ensure that only those people truly interested in woodlots are added as members.
I have always enjoyed being out in the woods (hiking, skiing, etc.). I am also fascinated by the fact that forests can provide us so many different resources, and if managed properly, are completely renewable. After completing high school, I plan to attend college to study forestry, and hope to eventually help others maintain their own woodlots. I am also intrigued by businesses that make use of forests such as firewood production or maple sugaring.

Common Trees of New Hampshire and the North Woods

Posted on February 25, 2019 at 5:30pm 2 Comments

About a year ago, I started a paper, which attempts to describe all the trees found in New Hampshire, my home state.  I started this project as a school project, where I would just observe trees and their habitats and write what I saw, but it quickly morphed into an informal research paper focused on silvics and commercial uses of the described…

How tree diversity affects invasive forest pests

Started by Brett Chedzoy in Woodlot Management. Last reply by Brett Chedzoy Mar 27. 1 Reply

A long-standing tenet in forestry is that healthier and more diverse woods are typically more resilient to stress factors and pest.  This holds true in most cases, but there are the notable exceptions like EAB.This article from the "Morning Ag…Continue

480a disqualification after EAB

Started by Bill Pontius in Woodlot Management. Last reply by Bill Pontius Mar 17. 4 Replies
