I'm a Forestry Technician.
Ask me anything about trees.
Have you hugged a tree today?
Have you decimated a forest instead?
Any good book recommendations for identifying North American trees? I don't even know what's in my yard.
Here in North Florida, I am mass-planting native/common/wild persimmon trees which grow in the area, which, once they are a couple inches thick, I will begin grafting Fuyu and Jiro cultivars onto the nematode-resistant native rootstocks.
Just wanted to tell ya.
Trees are friends.
Which one of these is a larch?
I'm in Wisconsin. The trees in the midwest I guess.
Because non-astringent persimmons are my absolute favorite fruit from which syrups, sugars, wines, beers, preserves, and many other culinary derivatives of these products can be made. That and I bought a house on some acreage this year, and I would like to have an abundance of fruit on it.
how i get my bike back? treefag
wtf how fast can a tree grow
i thinks sumthing going on in the world i missed... why all them bikes in trees?
Found a perfect red amanita muscaria one time in Algonquin. It was all nestled all alone, framed by moss. It was a pretty sight.
Because I saved it at least 10 years ago.
It's really quite stimulating. I won't go into it all, but I've done tree marking and timber cruising.
You gotta use your mind and body all day long.
>parasitic creeper vine
I don't really know what that is, but here in Ontario there's a lot of "wild grape vine" It can get more thna 6" thick and is quite invasive.
Just a 1 year condensed diploma program.
The job has it's ups and downs, but like I said earlier, it's very stimulating and never boring.
Well I found one more pic. Where did you saved it from? You probably have no idea right?
>Found a perfect red amanita muscaria one time in Algonquin. It was all nestled all alone, framed by moss. It was a pretty sight.
help me ID this bad boy
the romans thought that nymphs were living in trees
therefore any tree was feminine, which is the reason why they used feminine suffixes for trees only
my question is: is that true?
the part with the nymphs, obvs
>It can get more thna 6" thick and is quite invasive.
thats what she said
It's a not infront of me (my monitor is) but when I look out the window it's all manitoba maple. Nasty fucking tree but it does provide shelter.
I have no camera and am living in a city.
Probably saved it from here
I recognize it, but it's not in my book and I can't remember the name.
I don't know m8, but here is a larger version.
>im not outside
>i live in the city
>i have no phone
what the fuck kind of wasteful government spending is going on up there in the wasteland of Liberalstan?
You get a 1 year diploma and work in the city as a forest technician? the fuck lmao
you, my friend, are your worst enemy
not only are you content with what you have, but you are wasting your potential as if you had a lot of it
fucking google "i wanna learn latin" and by next week you'll be churning out latin like a pro
but noooo, you are too busy sucking dicks to do so
Red oak (objective) or white pine (personal favorite)
Oak is obvious because of the grain. Looks sexy af. Also a pure oak stand is truely a sight to behold. Huge straight trees. Looks really nice when managed properly.
And white pine because it's the biggest tree in Ontario and is very recognizable. It also has some pretty cool wood to work with.
This is just Ontario, though. Red cedar is amazing to see, as well, in BC.
It's only considered a sound if there is someone there to translate vibrating air into a sound.
The government doesn't pay me
Yeah that would be the wild grape vine.
The more times you post that the less funny it gets.
I'll learn it eventually.
>the one about learning latin and being a fag
Private forestry companies.
Like 80% of the land is owned by the crown, but it's divided up into "stewardships", which are managed by smaller companies.
I happened to work at the biggest private woodlot in Canada
Shit you found me out.
New Updated 2017 Tor/Deepweb Links! Enjoy!
that'a actually bullshit
some guy once hooked up a polygraph to a plant
it produced gibberish, because it always does
but instead of concluding that polygraphs are unscientific pieces of shit he concluded that plants have emotions
Hey op, how easy is it to get work after your schooling? Also I moved to a major metropolitan area for work, if I was to pursue being a technician would I be able to find easy work here or would I have to move back to the country?
It was pretty easy. I got my job with Toronto Conservation right away because of the diploma. I could still get the job otherwise, but they gave me the job right away and I ended up using my expertise more than I thought I would.
Right now it's a little bit difficult to find a propper forestry job, but there's a huge number of people retiring, so if you stay in it and get known (its a small community) you'll get a nice cushy job in a couple years.
I'm sorry, do you have a spicy pickle up your ass?
Do surveyors still mark line trees and if so, does it hurt the tree?
No I don't do commercial cutting. Sometimes I'll have a job to cut dead trees along a trail, but that's about it.
It's up to the forester or steward where and when forestry needs to take place. I just go in and mark the boundaries and roads and what trees to be cut.
I also take inventories of various stands for the office to decide if it's time to harvest that area or not.
Ontario is mostly second growth forests, very un managed with very few climax forests.
It has a history of hygrading, but it's a little better now.
Mostly a mix of deciduous and conifer trees, some plantations. The nice thing about them is the biodiversity. There's like 50 different tree species in Ontario, compared to like less than 10 in BC
I found them really fast. All set... just search better.
well done, lol, but i love 3d
How many trees need to be on a piece of land for it to count as a forest?
Because that's what I do already. Here we work with tractors from 50 years ago with no protection equipment or insurance whatsoever and I get paid at the end of the day.
I have never been to canada I'm currently in my home countr. My question was about the immigration procedure, and even if I manage to get there do I have a possibility to make a life for myself or failure is most likely?
Do you think the mass deforestation going on correlates with climate change? Do you think climate change is real in general? I'm interested to hear your perspective on this issue.
In the town of rowan
Mass deforestation is usually caused by man. Climate change is real and people in the profession are making claims to land that in the future will be warm enough to host other trees.
If it's a bad thing, or a good thing, or not something we control I have no idea.
I've cut four or five all together some times when they were all tangled at the top. It's not the safest way to cut down trees. Here we have mostly beech oak and hornbeam that we cut for firewood. Healthy beech is by itself dangerous to fall because it splits easily but very big hollow ones are death traps, they fall unexpectedly and when they hit the ground they explode in all directions. More experienced fallers than me cut a notch in them, not enough to fall them, and then use domino effect with another tree to fall them down at a safe distance.
np man it's okay. I'm from serbia
>I'm from serbia
My neighbor is from there. Interesting to hear the challenges of forestry there. I can safely say it's not MUCH better here.
There are huge machines that some people have that can fall an entire stand in a day and throw 50 cm+ trees a good 10 ft, but in my experience it's still mostly people like you cutting trees down and getting dragged out.
good thing jesus isnt real then you retarded sheep. Ofc a religious nut ball would also think that climate change is real bacuse hey i believe a man that walked the earth 2000 years ago turned water into wine and devided a whole fucking ocean lol
I guess there is not much difference afterall. I've seen those machines that fell and limb all together but here we have mostly very steep forests and all the wood is winched with a tractor and dragged away to flatter ground. There are a couple skidders (the one that have the joint in the middle) but again they are big machines and small tractors are easier to maneuver in tight forests. Also roads are mostly very bad.
Most wood is all cut into pieces 1 meter long and sold as firewood. Meter logs make loading easier because it's done mostly by hand in trucks or trailers, also easy to calculate the volume, you just stack them in a pile 1 meter high and measure the lenght.
