Deepwater,

I am glad to see you post on ENTS again. I am glad your wife is doing so much better. I remember you posting on her condition on the OBOD forum a little while back.

My dad just sold his sawmill. This should mean more fishing for the both of us!

I love them raspberries!

hey James,,Well the shed is mostly up 12x16 6' walls and a nice pitch,,The 4x8 sheets of OSB are lots heavier than I remember but all but 1 outside wall is up and shingles are next,,My brushy lot/woods is starting to fill in nicely and in another year or maybe 2 ill start to selectivity thin out some twigs,,Hundreds of the small white-pine are now over 7' tall as are the dozens of Balsoms and lots of the oaks and maples are 3 and 4' tall and my bees have been awesome so far for their first year

Deepwater,

There are some really good folks here, Like Gaines McMartin, who can probably give you some really good advice on managing your woodlands. Especially those White pines.

Again, don't be a stranger!

James
