  •  You get a really good workout with that (8+ / 0-)

    restoration work. And in a much more beautiful setting than a gym.

    Interesting how many oak species you have over there. In conifer-land here we don't have many deciduous trees.

    •  partly due to cows and logging?... (7+ / 0-)

      the original people also burned to keep areas free from pine to support the oak economy. Logging and cattle further confused the forest..but gradually the pines seem to grow into the artificially opened areas if left to themselves.
        That forester from Eureka, Bolithio talks about that often on his blog..Nooks and Crannies that I have linked to before..and I think he showed some nurse trees in there once at least...iirc, heh.

      the norcal Yakut tribe iirc got USFS permissions to burn for the oaks and basket and ceremonial materials, but by the time they gained permission, it was too hot and dry, oopsi! so the USFS  rescinded the permission to the tribe. And now they are way low on rainfall as well...so the pines keep edging in, shading the oaks...

      Jerked around much? and sooo patient. But they are not giving up...

      I hope I've got that right..or else fbob....will...will.. Hey look! over there: Bigfoot!!

      This machine kills Fascists.
