Chainsaws for Charity (C4C) - October 7, 2017 - The BIG Haul!

Two teams of Rotarians showed up for work today to transport and deliver 24 face cords of the finest C4C firewood.  This firewood was pre-sold earlier in the year by The Rotary, with all of the purchase price going to support Camp Onseyawa, a camp for children with special needs.  So far, C4C and The Rotary have donated approximately $2,500 to Camp Onseyawa (https://www.onseyawa.org/).  In addition, please recall that C4C has already donated approximately $1,000 to NYFOA's excellent and active youth forestry programs.  Habitat for Humanity of Ontario County has also benefited financially from C4C's efforts.  This project is really producing excellent results!

It is important to note that none of this would be possible if it weren't for Tom Gerow and Wagner Hardwoods (http://www.wagnerlumber.com/).  They are an extremely generous partner and they supply the fine hardwood logs for the operation.  The logs are clean and are top quality, making our process a pleasure.  A big THANKS! to Tom, his team, and Wagner!

The Rotary of Walworth-Ontario, under the leadership of Jonathan Wordingham, arrived at 8:30 am to load up 4 face cords bound for delivery to points north and east.  They will return this coming Saturday to gather up another 6 face cords.  Jonathan will forward some pictures of their team soon and we'll upload them.

The Rotary of Canandaigua, under the leadership of Dr. Greg Gullo, arrived at 11am with an army of volunteers to load and deliver 20 face cords.  Check out this picture of the happy team mates:

The team brought four trailers and an array of pickup trucks, thanks to the kindness of the volunteers.  Dr. Greg had a monster-sized dump trailer courtesy of Admar (Admar Supply) in Canandaigua.  Thanks Admar!

The pic above demonstrates that Team Canandaigua survived the haul! 

On our end, we had the hard work of Gary Koplun and David Deuel, and I was able to hide enough and talk enough to not have to lift a single stick!

I'm happy to report that the C4C firewood stack is....no more.  We'll need to get back to it here soon, to generate some more firewood for our charitable partners. 

If you're a NYFOA member and would like to join the effort, please contact Eileen soon (dschaefer1@frontiernet.net).  We'll get together at David and Celia's around the end of October or the beginning of November, and I bet the after-cut social will be great!

A long-standing tenet in forestry is that healthier and more diverse woods are typically more resilient to stress factors and pest.  This holds true in most cases, but there are the notable exceptions like EAB.This article from the "Morning Ag…Continue

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
