Tim Levatich replied to Brett Chedzoy's discussion Beech Leaf Disease
"Nice to hear that work is being done with apparently resistant trees. Clear beech boards are attractive when finished and of course beech nuts are fabulous wildlife food. I hope beech leaf disease doesn't become a landscape-wide scourge. We…"

Tim Levatich replied to Brett Chedzoy's discussion Beech Leaf Disease
"Will keep an eye out next growing season, Brett. Does it ultimately result in any mortality? In the meantime, it might reduce effectiveness of glyphosate foliar spray due to compromised leaf and conductive tissue in twigs/branches. Tim"

Tim Levatich commented on Peter Smallidge's blog post Ecology and Management of Ferns in Northeastern Forests
"Follow-up one year later: We had great control on the ferns! I had timed my spraying to follow weeks of rain that came between our drought periods. Turns out that the rain must have restored the metabolic activity in the plants necessary for the…"

Tim Levatich commented on Peter Smallidge's blog post Ecology and Management of Ferns in Northeastern Forests
"Thanks for this post, Pete.  I've been spot-spraying New York fern and Hay-scented fern during late summer this year.  So far the ferns look nice and green, weeks after treatment.  I'm concerned that drought stress lowered…"

Tim Levatich replied to Jim Miller's discussion boundary line cutting
"Hi, Jim. Remnants of metal fencing indicate the former location of a fence. So your implication that they may not accurately show the location of the property boundary is sound. Fences could have been built well to one side or the other of a known…"

Tim Levatich replied to Jakob Berger's discussion Harvesting American Beech
"Hi, Jakob. I forgot to mention that you should check with your sawyer first.  He/she may not like to saw frozen logs, depending on their mill.  Also, some species may be okay when frozen, others may not.  I don't have specific…"

Tim Levatich replied to Carl Albers's discussion Flat Rate Timber Sale
"Carl, Oh, good - you've gotten advice from foresters.  I think you're on the right track.  Yes, small sales are hard to bid.  Good luck with it and consider posting here any lessons learned. Tim"

Tim Levatich replied to Carl Albers's discussion Flat Rate Timber Sale
"Hi, Carl. You are paying attention to many of the right things.  What strikes me in your detailed description is the number of times that your forest has been cut in the past and how many times these cuts have been high-grades.  The low…"

Tim Levatich replied to James Curatolo's discussion clearcut
"James, I would add to Pete's excellent advice, from personal experience.  If you go for any option that cuts live trees and don't want certain species to come back into the "restarted" stand, make sure you know which species…"

Tim Levatich replied to Thomas Wilson's discussion Are Gall's a reason to cull Hickory trees?
"Jerry, I'm interested to know if these galled trees of yours show normal grain in the stem.  I have some bitternuts that are affected as well.  I had not examined them closely before, but I recently felled one (about 11 inches DBH)…"

Tim Levatich replied to Chaz U. Farly's discussion Unsplit Firewood
"Chaz, I've cut my own wood and also sold to others for many years.  I recent years I've kept time logs of person-hours spent on each phase of the operation (fell, skid, buck, split, haul, stack).  I looked at some of my sheets…"

Tim Levatich replied to Gary Carr's discussion Suggestions on purchase of ATV machine

Tim Levatich replied to Peter Smallidge's discussion Your Experience with Beech Frill Herbicide Treatments
"Forgot to answer the questions directly. 1. Diameter of beech you treated? - From 1 to 24 inches DBH.  On stems larger than 8 inches we usually used a chainsaw to girdle the tree, then applied herbicide mix into the cut. 2. Time of year the…"

Tim Levatich replied to Peter Smallidge's discussion Your Experience with Beech Frill Herbicide Treatments
"Hi, Pete. We've used frilling with Glyphosate to treat beech on our place for a long time.  We used to frill 100% around the stem at a comfortable height, then gently squirt our mix of 50% herbicide and 50% water into the frill.  We…"
