I having a timber harvest. A lot of new logging roads will be made on 100 acres. I need information about seeding to prevent erosion. My guess is that some roads will be in heavy or light shade…Continue
"I'm seeing this question has resurfaced. Just to give a heads-up, I've scheduled two webinars (Sept and Nov 2021) to cover some landowner-friendly GPS, GIS and Google Earth Pro options. Presenters are Soil and Water Conservation District…"

About 1982 I planted 8000 white pine in a former pasture on the advice of my ex-forester with an OK from the DEC. They got badly weeviled. I thinned every third row and later also hit the most damaged ones which were left. I hoped to favor the few that were halfway good and a the same time expected regeneration of hardwoods and and pine that would avoid the weevils because of the protection of the older ones` shading.

"Thanks guys. It seems all the info needed is now here. My problem is understanding it. I am not that good at computer/cell phone use. The local library computer guy was not able to help me much, either.

"I've used Gaia GPS on my android and had decent success. There is a short but real learning curve. After using it in practice once or twice and then uploading to my computer it became intuitive. I think the cost is about $40 per year, but it…"
"I used MotionX-GPS for a year or so, but they have discontinued support. I believe those who have already downloaded it can continue using it, but it is no longer in the app store.As Gerry Hawkes mentioned, it was a solid app."

Check out Gaia GPS. It will record tracks as you walk them and display them on a selection of possible maps (satellite, some topo,…"
"That is the answer I expected and feared. Establishing a deer proof slash barrier is financially unfeasible.
I guess the most I can hope for is to direct the deer with brush piles past hunters´stands."
"IT IS NOT CLEAR TO ME WHY ONE SHOULD REMOVE ALL STEMS GREATER THAN 1". Isn´t it better to have desirable growing stock already there?
A second question: is does a partial slash wall slow down deer movement and create…"

I dunno maybe it's because time flies when it's multiflora rose and buckthorns that are getting whacked. It seems that these blades are needing retirement after 8 or so hours. Is this typical for this type of material. WIde range of material but…Continue
