Re: Managing for biodiversity

Bob: Ed has given a broad philosophical answer to this question. I can offer the specific example of my own forestland. This is something I think have been doing for years on my timberland--perhaps to an extreme that some people would not like to contemplate. On the less controversial side of the sc...

very nice cedar tree in downtown Winchester, VA

ENTS: When we were still using the old discussion forum, someone mentioned that he/she was very fond of cedar trees--I think Deodar. I am not sure if this is a Doedar or another kind of cedar. I took the pic in the rain, but maybe it is good enough to give you some idea of this tree. It is as nice a...

Re: Valuing Forests

Ed and ENTS: The most simple division I can think of would be between forests that are especially rare and/or have some special characteristics, and the more ordinary "everyday" forests. I am as concerned about the latter as the former, especially in locations where such forests have all but disappe...

Re: New ENTS BBS site.

Gary: I tried that a couple of times early on and nothing came up--it just said "search unsuccessful." Ed told me that that just meant no one had posted anything since I last logged in. Well, here's my question. If I log in, and don't ask for the new posts, and then log in later, do I miss the new p...

Re: New ENTS BBS site.

ENTS: I expect the amount of discussion will be somewhat reduced in this new format. Two reasons; some extra navigation will be required to see everything. For people on dial-up, this can require a lot of extra time. Second, the lack of a direct link to e-mail means people will not automatically see...

Re: Welome to the ENTS BBS

Hi Ed: I am posting here to get myself "officially" in. Thanks for all you have done both in setting this up and managing the website. I don't know how you find the time, energy, and concentration to keep uo with it all. It is just about all I can manage to learn how to participate! But, where is ev...

Re: Natives in the landscape

Well, this is a test. I typed in a response here last night and it didn't appear. So before I take the time to type in a new one, I want to test this to see if I am wasting time again.

Re: Valuing Forests

Ed: Are there any books published that try to take a more or less comprehensive view of the value of forests? I have in an informal way come across various articles/comments about this, but I have not seen anything that attempts to take a large general view. Maybe there is a reason for that (apart f...

Re: Natives in the landscape

Steve: I'll look for one. Are they common in the trade? I have a regular "species" redbud, and the particular one I got flowers less well than average. It may be my soil, but I think it is good. Or, as I suspect, it is just the variation within the species. By the way, there is a half mile or so str...
