I agree, although the warm spell the last few weeks allowed me to cut a lot of buckthorn down and clean up some last remaining tires and garbage. Funny though the deer don't seem to care about it, but seems I'm seeing more deer on the property since I started restoration of the property. In all seriousness though guys, the up/down weather pattern of last month and a half does have a up side. It's killing a lot of bugs/ticks. Got a little warm, they came out and bam the cold knocked them back, and repeated a couple times. Ticks can severely effect fawn development and effect adult deer health. Recent studies have shown this is actually getting worse. Hate to open a can of worms but even having small carnivores can help break the larval nymph and sub adult/ mouse connection cycle of ticks by preying on mice. Don't trap or shoot all your carnivores, they're the ones eating the tick Infested mice. Chin up guys, winter won't last forever.
well this weather is a kick in the nuts! i was hoping to get a start on my feilds this weekend!! Guess not.
Just did some hinge cutting for the 1st time. Did not do a lot. Want to see if how I am doing it works prior to cutting more trees.
I will look into that. Thanks for the info Badger.
I'd shy away from plastic tubes around the trunks, at least with apple trees. Window screen allows better airflow than tubes. Also keeps out insects better, borers/etc.
i was thinking of using the plastic drainage tubes around the trunks. wasnt thinking about the rabbits though!
For apples take 36" aluminum window screen and wrap it around the trunk and staple it shut using a desktop stapler. Bury the screen a little if you can. Mice/rabbit problem solved.
