CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest
Wednesdays 6PM – 7PM
WIOX ROXBURY 91.3FM or www.wioxradio.org
On Wednesday night’s show we’ll be talking to Bob Conyea about Firewood, Forest Tools & More. Bob has been the owner of a nearby chainsaw shop for about 20 years. However, he is also well versed in the history of forest tools and how they were used in these mountains. We’ll also ask Bob about modern-day forest tools and the industry they are used in, as well as their future. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online at www.wioxradio.org to learn more.
WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST?
It was fairly cold out yesterday which allowed me to escape the maple evaporator since the trees weren’t running with sap. On my walk up the hill, the maple trees rewarded my ascent with a sweet “maplesicle.” Some the maple trees had wounds from this year’s tree trimming, or some other injury. The wounds had leaked out some sap, but then froze. The frozen ice was surprisingly sweeter than expected. Hey, it’s better than nothing.
May the forest be with you,
Catskill Forest Association
