    SherrillTree catalogues

    Does anyone have back issues of the SherrillTree catalogue going back through 2005? Mine seem to have disappeared during one of several moves. I'm trying to trace a particular item for a possible article. Thanks

    Redwoods near Portland Oregon?

    I know this is short notice, but I'm headed to the Portland, Oregon area (Portland, Mt. Hood, Crater Lake, Eugene) later this month and wondered if there are any redwoods to see there or if they are only further south, in California. Or better yet, if there are some big trees there, any locals...

    bending yellowwood

    My neighbor has a small (1" diam) yellowwood (Cladrastis kentuckea, formerly Cladrastis lutea) that is bent over from the weight of the new growth. She said it did the same thing last year, so she thinned it to see if it would straighten out, but that didn't help. More new growth this year and...

    treeMOTION vs treeMOTION S.light

    Anyone have comments comparing these two saddles? Looking at catalogue and web descriptions the main difference seems to be thinner material in the S.light, which translates into a slightly lighter overall weight (5.5 vs 3.95 lbs, respectively) . Are there differences in durability, comfort...

    E &O insurance

    For those who do consulting (and specifically risk assessment), do you have E&O insurance? And for those who do not advertise as doing consulting, but who do give opinions of trees (and particularly their structural stability), how many have E&O insurance? I have heard of very few cases...

    suggestions for saving this cracked oak??

    photo 1 cavity This is a 65 - 70 foot tall, 80 - 100 foot wide, 36 - 40 inch DBH (although, as the photos will show, on the stump it is much bigger) white oak. Two weeks ago I noticed some seepage in a vertical line above this basal cavity. I assumed it was from a hairline crack.

    parts for older 034

    Anyone know an online or mail order source for parts for older Stihl saws? I have an 034 that needs the pull cord assembly and the local saw shop quoted me a little over $100. They said the cost was high because the saw was so old (I think I bought it around 1991). Thanks.

    Grow Light

    When my wife and I lived in Indiana she purchased a Grow Light to start seedlings indoors. Before the next winter we moved to Georgia and, because of the shorter winters, never used the Grow Light. I'm not sure what we paid for it, but it is made by Hydrofarm:
