Logging Company Project : First Phase

Flat Iron Road:
On April 23, Rick and Marcia Baker took soil samples from Seven Islands' designated sites. Here you see Rick Baker and Seven Islands, forester, Pete Smith. Unlike Wagner's sites, Club members will be seeding a road instead of logging sites. Two acres will contain wood ash along with seed and two more acres will contain seed only. This way, we will see how effective wood ash will be in adding plant vitality. These places look pretty rugged right now, but they will be leveled out by a bulldozer prior to wood ash delivery. In late June, after the ash is delivered. our own Dave Borman will use his Kabota to distribute the ash . A volunteer group will rake it, followed by a rock rake. Then we wait for rains to help absorb the ash into the soil.
