Ely McLaughlin replied to Joanne Vaughn's discussion How long do brush cutter blades work?
"Eight hours seems short for a blade to be completely trashed.  I have never used the circular saw blades, but did a lot of work using the three-blade brush knife, when I was cutting ski trails, last summer.  I found that the blade would…"

How many acres of woodland do you own or annually manage?
209
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 3 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…

Started by Tim Levatich in Forest Health Sep 9. 0 Replies

Hi, All.I've been reading brief mentions that spotted lantern fly "likes maple". I'm wondering if there is any experience so far with what happens to a forest that has a heavy proportion of maple composition and is hit with a SLF infestation. Our…Continue

Hypo-hatchet

Started by Mike Blasko in Woodlot Management Jul 28. 0 Replies

I just got a hypo-hatchet to use for beech hack and squirt treatments. The manufacturer states to only use with Amine herbicides only. Is glyphosate an Amine or Ester herbicide?Continue

Forester recommendations?

Started by Roger Rodriguez in Woodlot Management. Last reply by Michael Dirac Jul 10. 2 Replies

We are new to forestry ownership and need some advice. We would like to be good stewards of the property and also provide occasional profit of some kind, especially to offset the taxes we pay on the property. I was thinking tree farming (?) as a…Continue

succession after a pine plantation

Started by Jim Martin in Woodlot Management Jun 23. 0 Replies

About 1982 I planted 8000 white pine in a former pasture on the advice of my ex-forester with an OK from the DEC. They got badly weeviled.  I thinned   every third row  and  later also   hit  the most damaged ones which were left.  I hoped to favor…Continue

Hemlock

Started by Chaz U. Farly in Woodlot Management. Last reply by Jim Martin Jun 23. 2 Replies

Is there a reason the State of New York stopped selling hemlock seedlings? I'd made up my mind that I'd like to plant a hundred, maybe more, for my grandsons to enjoy, but find no source. Continue

How long do brush cutter blades work?

Started by Joanne Vaughn in Woodlot Management. Last reply by Joanne Vaughn May 19. 8 Replies

I dunno maybe it's because time flies when it's multiflora rose and buckthorns that are getting whacked. It seems that these blades are needing retirement after 8 or so hours.   Is this typical for this type of material. WIde range of material but…Continue
