Re: Introducing myself - Kentucky

Thanks, Bob and Joe. Joe, this is outside the scope of this site, but I will just quickly say that 1) the Manomet study was deeply flawed (I did a detailed analysis for a client); and 2) Biomass harvesting, by placing a price on low-grade logs, could be the best thing to happen to forest health here...

Re: Moosewood Bill Harlow

Joe - I don't think there is any irony here, but i should have been clearer about Moosewood Bill's perspective. Dr. Harlow was an ardent explorer of the Adirondack Park, the largest park in the eastern US. He spent decades tramping the trails and bushwhacking throughout the Park, especially in the C...

This reminiscence is ...

Re: Carolina hemlock genetics study

This is a fascinating discovery, and I would love to see those trees. We pretty much accept Little's range maps (which were derived from Sargent's) as gospel, but relict or disjunct populations are easy to overlook. I have to agree with the prior discussion that it seems unlikely that these are CCC ...

Re: Introducing myself - Kentucky

Joe - Yes, most of my projects are biomass for electricity and thermal, although I expect the emphasis to move toward liquid fuels. I just completed the conversion of a coal-fired steam boiler in Louisville, KY to waste wood. The plant runs on 100,000 green tons of wood a year and provides process a...

Re: Carolina hemlock genetics study

Steve, I am not familiar with Carolina hemlock in Ohio and don't see it on the range maps. Where are these trees? Are they a relict or disjunct population or planted?
