#1)  Greetings from Wisconsin

Postby wisconsitom » Mon Feb 15, 2016 10:02 am

Hello everybody.  Long-time horticulturist, forester, lover of all that is green.  Job responsibilities are evenly split between ornamental horticulture and native vegetation, the former as designer, installer and maintenance director of my city's display beds and planters, etc. and the latter as a part of this city's stormwater management initiative.  I love the split.  It keeps my toes in both pools of water.  In my own time, growing trees is what I like and care about.  Currently growing trees for timber at our tree farm in northern Wisconsin.  Looking to possibly start a southern branch in, say.........Costa Rica!  Will see how that ends up.

Tom (I think),

  Welcome aboard. If you have a little time and scan through the long list of topics, I think you'll find a lot to like. If you have an interest in tree measuring, you've hit the jackpot. Again, welcome aboard.

Contact me privately and and we can talk about Costa Rica where my residency was just approved.  I have lived here moste of the year for 3 years.   I know the country, the trees, and the parks.  I have a flat rate Skype account, so I can contact you by cell, land line or computer.

Thanks all, for the warm welcome.  I can tell you already that this place suits me.  I'm not especially about measurement per se but I see the need for verification of claims made, and just the general little spring it puts in your step to read about enormous trees!  And yes Luke, that Houzz post is what got me here.  I still like participating there, but somehow, I just needed more than maybe advising somebody on whether or not to remove a branch that is hanging over their clothesline, lol!  More in-depth, about trees themselves, not so much as "amenities" in people's yards, is what brought me here.

Bart, I've indeed been reading  many of your CR and Panama accounts.  Great stuff, just amazing.  I will indeed hit you up private, as soon as I figure out how that works here.  Thanks much.
