Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - May 23, 2018 - Making Progress...

Just a quick post to show some pics from last Wednesday and as a reminder to mark your calendar for the next bimonthly event on June 9 at David and Celia's place just outside of Avon, NY.  More on that below.....

Here's Jim whittling logs down to size:

And here's David and Keith using the new machine to crunch the rounds:

And the Overlord, Boo, demanding a simultaneous semi-reverse orthogonal bow from Jim and yours truly:

Not shown in the pictures above is our cameraman, Greg.  These midweek events are short and fun.  I think it started at 9 and we were done around noon, with a muffin break in between.  David measured the stacks and another seven face cords were put up. 

We'll have to meet up soon with our partners Dr. Greg and Jonathan at The Rotary to discuss this season.  If possible, it might be nice to move some of the wood prior to the fall to make some needed room at the landing and we'll see.

Eileen mentioned that she will be sending an invite for Saturday June 9, 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.  I think that some may decide to head around the corner afterwards to see Justin and Heather at Dublin Corners Farm Brewery.  Here's a link to their site and some pics of their family (Justin, Heather, Barley and the Kids):

So if you're a NYFOA member and want to have some fun while doing good, please send Eileen a note at dschaefer1@frontiernet.net.  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 (dfaklis@frontiernet.net).  NYFOA and the charities would be grateful.  See you next time!

480a disqualification after EAB

Started by Bill Pontius in Woodlot Management Jan 4. 0 Replies

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

Slash and squirt control of Ailanthus

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
