As long as we're on the topic of trees...

Apparently, it's also important that you always plant native trees because they attract insects that are critical to native birds. (Same with berries/nuts/seeds which are needed by native wildlife, which I think I touched on above.)  Apparently, if you plant non-native species, you don't get the right kind of bugs / berries / nuts / seeds for the ecosystem, and your native species suffer.  Who knew!


So true!

Farmers/gardeners know and knew.    I recently got access to a nice area of pasture where I have been able to set up a strip along the front, about 50 feet wide, that contains a huge variety of pollinator bait.  Actually, I didn't have to do much - just let it grow.  The butterfly show is always impressive.  Also have a pretty big population of what is a "near threatened" species of frog - Crawfish frog.  Yep, they eat crawfish!  Before I found them, I had delusions of occasional crawfish boils!!

Also used some methods I knew were good, but never had opportunity to try on a bigger scale.  One in pasture management - neighbors in the area average about 1.5 to 2 of those large round bales per acre on their places.  I get just over 6 - literally next door.  Guess I will "keep on truckin'..."


I have a large honey locust tree that I am trying to decide what to do about -  beautiful trees!!  Gazillions of those long seed pods that draw deer like candy!  And little honey locust trees over a 5 acre area!  And spikes!  Up to 6" long to hang the grandkids on to keep them out of my hair!!     Just kidding!!!   Am going to cut it down just to keep them out of it.   Plus get some magnificent lumber!!  That will become the American Chestnut experimental space at that time.

And while we are off the topic of Chapman Green....  I may have missed it here - probably - but is there a tree plan for the place?  Or just discussions now?

No tree plan that I know of.

Sadness -no trees!    If I have success with the American Chestnut, maybe they would be interested in a donated tree....?   The resistant one, not the blight tree....

Perhaps someone could sneak out there in the dark of night and plant a tree in the middle of the park where the oak once was.  Cool

The secret to anonymous acts of public works is to wear a reflective vest and a hard hat, and do the work in broad daylight.  If you own a white pickup, all the better.  A few orange cones never hurt anyone either.

There's plenty of broad daylight at the Chapman Centennial Green and the Walton Family Lawn.  Lots of bright sunshine ... very little shade ...

I could do that...wonder if it would get watered?   Needs to be after the first frost....

If people routinely steal the copper wiring and aluminum poles of the streetlights that "fight crime" we can probably have guerilla gardening.

If a small oak tree were to appear in front of DECOPOLIS (Michael cough) it might then appear planted in the park.
