Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - August 4, 2018 - The Landing is a Popular Place!

A dramatic turn of events caused the Chainsaws for Charity work area to become the HOT place to be last Saturday.  Attendance looked like it might be on the lite side, but changing schedules created plenty of activity.  Thanks to Dave Keebler, Dana, and Greg, we have excellent photos to tell the story.  Here's a nice shot of Dave (in yellow) and David (in blue).  It was Dave's first time out with C4C and we really enjoyed his company!  Dave's a hard worker and has a great sense of humor.  Welcome Aboard Dave!

The following is an example of the problem we have here sometimes.   Kathy and Bill are hard at work and Dana, David and Jim, well.....are supervising!

Here is a pic of Bill delivering split firewood over to the stacking area:

Jim and Greg, cutting in unison!

Celia's shown here completing the final stacks for the day.

And we're not exactly sure who this guy is!  He comes late, walks around looking through the wood piles for gold nuggets and leaves early!

Here's Dana muscling a round into submission while Bill and Kathy drive the splitter.  Thanks again to the team at Runnings in Brockport for their support of NYFOA's efforts and stepping up to help NYFOA with the splitter!

Here's a nice shot of some C4C'ers in action:

Jim unearths a strange log formation, which has been dubbed Woodhenge!  The work of Druids?  We're grateful to the team at Wagner Hardwoods and they will be delivering another load of fine logs for charity.  The Rotarians are busy finding new homes for all of this firewood so that the proceeds can be sent to Camp Onseyawa for children with special needs.

Lots of work, but lots of fun and good banter!  Stop out next time and join in!

Next up...most every second and fourth Wednesday's at David and Celia's, but there is no event on August 8.  Upcoming Wednesdays include:  August 22, 9am-noon. 

Look for an email from Eileen about the next Saturday event and please mark your calendars!  Please spread the word to other NYFOA members; we'd love to see them at the landing!

If you're a NYFOA member and want to have some fun while doing good, please send Eileen a note at  She will place you on the mailing list.  If you'd rather just attend the post-firewood social, you're more than welcome!  It really is a fine time for all. 

If you would like to donate working equipment or cash to help defray some expenses, please send me a note (  NYFOA and the charities would be grateful.  See you next time!

Here's a hypothetical question (hopefully). If an ash stand no longer has sufficient density to qualify for the 480a program following ash borer invasion, and if that stand is necessary for having more than 50 acres for the program, what happens?…Continue

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. Continue
