"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…"

"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"

"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…"

"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 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…"
