Wednesday Night’s Show: Catskill Trees with Gary Mead – Red Oak
Every 3rd Wednesday we talk to Gary Mead about a different tree found in or near the Catskill Mountains. Every tree is different, and there is always something unique & special we find out about it. On October 15, we’ll be discussing the RED OAK tree. Red oak has beautiful wood that is used in a wide variety of wood products. It is also extremely important to wildlife that depend upon its nutritious acorns to survive winter.
Gary Mead is the owner of Fruitful Furnishings. Fruitful Furnishings began in 1979 as a custom furniture shop. Within ten years, a sawmill was added for producing dimension parts and providing custom sawing, planing, and kiln drying services to customers wishing to furnish their homes with wood from their own trees. Gary has also opened to the public – Gary Mead Gallery – located at the mill-site, which showcases one-of-a-kind pieces made from wood. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online @ www.wioxradio.org to learn more.
WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
Hey, ever walk in the woods and almost step on a timber rattlesnake? Well, that almost happened to me last week. Luckily most timber rattlesnakes just want to be left alone and normally slither away and rattle to let you know where they are.
May the forest be with you,
