Where are our largest Black Cherry trees? Where do we lack regeneration? What about relative density and optimum growth? This and so much more can be queried with a mouse-click today in GIS (Geographic Information System).
Half a year ago, we made the first post on our efforts to get ahead of the Emerald Ash Borer. In the meantime, the enemy No. 1 of North American Ash expanded into one additional state and five more of our own properties. At least!
If trees could read, they would probably disagree to call our activity “salvaging” – as we do nothing but try to get ahead of the “Emerald Ash Borer” (Agrilus Planipennis Fairmaire).
