  • Sawyer Sawmill Review by Eric Hughes

    I’d like to take a minute to tell you about my Hud-Son Sawyer sawmill. I picked it up, probably been about six months now. I’ve used it quite a bit. I felt like I’d give it a little justice and tell a little about it. I picked it up at a local co-op, they are a Hud-Son dealer. I talked to them about different mills they offer. I kind of had a price point in mind about 2,000 ...

  • The newest strategy for saving bees is really, really old

    With pollinators in decline around the world, conservationists turn to traditional farmers for answers. In northwestern India, the Himalaya Mountains rise sharply out of pine and cedar forests. The foothills of the Kullu Valley are blanketed with apple trees beginning to bloom. It’s a cool spring morning, and Lihat Ram, a farmer in Nashala village, shows me a ...

  • Soil water recharge for grassed and forested land covers on the Oak Ridges Moraine, southern Ontario, Canada

    Soil water recharge (R) below 1 m depth was estimated via a 1-d water balance for grasslands, hardwood stands and red pine plantations on the Oak Ridges Moraine (ORM) in southern Ontario, Canada. Annual R values (431–696 mm) were in the order of previous estimates for outcropping sands and gravels on the ORM (∼400 mm); however, they only partially supported hypothesized ...

  • Observations and snow model simulations of winter energy balance terms within and between different coniferous forests in southern boreal Finland

    Variation of canopy properties between different forest types is seldom taken into account in hydrological and climate models, and consideration of variation inside a forest is normally omitted. In this work, three data sets on near surface energy balance terms (incoming shortwave and longwave radiation; air and snow–soil interface temperatures) were collected in the southern boreal coniferous ...

  • Time for Trees to Pack Their Trunks?

    As climate changes, forest ecosystems will need to shift to more suitable sites. Should humans lend a helping hand? During the last two springs, contract planters for The Nature Conservancy have spread out through the pine, spruce and aspen forest of northeastern Minnesota. Wielding steel hoedads, they have planted almost 110,000 tree seedlings on public ...

  • Lumber company expedites shipping procedures

    Pukall Lumber Company, located in Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin, is a family-owned and operated wood products manufacturer. The business is two-pronged; the sawmill was founded in 1937 and later a retail building supply was added to sell lumber and other building materials to area builders. Pukall handles red and white pine logs primarily, sawing them into accurate dimension lumber for the construction ...

  • The impact of beetle-induced conifer death on stand-scale canopy snow interception

    Bark beetles have killed more than 100,000 km2 of pine forest in western North America, causing trees to lose the majority of their canopy material and potentially leading to enhanced subcanopy snow accumulation. Over a 45-day period, we tested this hypothesis by measuring daily snow accumulation in three living and two dead lodgepole pine stands and in three adjacent clearings. The largest ...

  • Air‐plant exchange of brominated flame retardants at a rural site: Influencing factor, interspecies difference, and forest scavenging

    Brominated flame retardants (BFRs) in eucalyptus leaves and pine needles from a rural site in southern China were measured to investigate the air‐plant exchange. The mean concentrations of BFRs were higher in pine needles (79.8 ng/g dry weight) than in eucalyptus leaves (74.5 ng/g), whereas an inverse result were found for the leaf surface particles (LSPs), with mean concentrations of 3490 and ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of vacuum drying process of pine timbers

    In this study, an experimental system for the vacuum drying of timbers is designed. Experiments in the different temperature, pressure and the residence time in vacuum are carried out. The drying experiments are conducted at three different drying temperatures varied between 40°C and 60°C. The drying experiments are conducted at three different pressures varied between 60 kPa and 80 kPa. The ...

  • The fate of lead at abandoned and active shooting ranges in a boreal pine forest

    Changes in leaching, availability, bioaccumulation, and vertical distribution of lead (Pb) in soil 20 years after the cessation of shooting activity were studied by comparing three pine forest sites in southern Finland: an active shooting range, an abandoned shooting range, and a noncontaminated control site. At both shooting ranges, shooting activity had lasted for 20 years, but it had taken ...

  • Let the kids go wild outdoors

    A number of international studies have shown that children in developed nations spend an average of 55 hours a week indoors using electronics. Even though this means that the youth in these countries are techno-savvy, it often results in them spending less and less time outdoors. How do we change this, and get our kids to experience the wonders of nature, develop creativity and learn to ...

  • Aspect and soil textural controls on snowmelt runoff on forested Boreal Plain hillslopes

    Plot studies were conducted on a jack pine forest with sandy soil and aspen forests with sandy and loam soils to examine the controls of slope aspect, soil texture and fall soil moisture content on near-surface snowmelt runoff and infiltration. It was hypothesized that near-surface runoff would be greater from north-facing slopes on loam soils with increased fall soil moisture content. Fall soil ...

  • Web of knowledge, web of life, web of wonder

    It"s October, it"s late in the season and it"s been a bad year for mushrooms in Finland. Webcaps, a type of mushroom found particularly in the boreal and temperate forests of northern Europe, are no exception. Webcaps play an important role in these forest ecosystems. They are mycorrhizal fungi that live in symbiosis with the trees, providing nutrients and protection from diseases and receiving ...
