  1. G-man those were nice trees. Must have been a heartbreaker to see them get infected.
  2. The oldest ones were planted this year, they were just from 5 gal instead of 3 gal planters like the ones that recovered from shoot. Those were planted about 2 years ago.
  3. They will need a stratification period. About 3 months in your fridge or cold garage perhaps should do it, in a bag or sealed plastic container with moist peat moss or equal medium. After that any good ones should sprout. If they're a year old, I don't know half cold be moldy inside already. Then again what's there to loose. Check the container once in a while if you see mold clumps on any those are bad. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Logging Time

    Few years ago had the property logged, and that was a good healthy choice for the place. It opened up allot and the undergrowth like others said took off. It also provided some plot, stand and tree planting opportunities that I'm trying to take advantage of.
  6. Few years ago I began a project to see if hybrid American Chestnut trees would fair well on the property. Located in 4b growing zone, 6k ny dec. The following year got off to a rocky start as the heavy snow took it's toll on the young trees. Well, these dunstans would come back from shoot growth. If they wouldn't give up neither would I. Here's a view on the progress / update. There's some stand, plot, cam pics in as well. 2018 Fall Chestnut Update aprox 7.5 min. Can't seem to embed to video, hope the link will suffice.

    Wild Berry Bushes

    Found out what one of my blueberry problems was, about a half dozen were a species that does not do well in zone 5 or lower. Go figure they were from tractor supply in Pulaski.

    Brush Blinds

    I think brush blinds are better in some ways, natural camouflage for example. One less thing to carry, if it's iffy weather will have an umbrella anyway. You can burn some time setting & fixing them up though. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Plot update

    Having a similar issue with a brassica radish mix plot. Patches of good growth and bare spots. Considering the small seed I'm thinking they got to deep. So next weekend I guess hit a few spots with some jazz & a rake. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Pigeon problems

    This reminds me of the entrance to Gander. Up in the raft timber above the doors they had lots of spikes to detur birds. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Wild Berry Bushes

    Planted a few currant variety last year as an expirament, they seem to be doing ok. It's blueberrys I'm having trouble with for some reason. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Food plot question

    What are you planting? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  14. I have a few planted, as an expirament of sorts. The ones I got from T/S were small and should have spent time in 3gal buckets first. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

    Winter Rye

    One good thing about w/r is it's pH tolerance for new plots. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
