    Plant in CRP

    Out scouting some public today, this plant with its purple-black pods caught my eye. Inside were what appeared to be small seeds that were a bit sticky. What do you think? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Name this shrub

    This has been on the field edge and I’ve resisted cutting or spraying as I’m not sure what it was. Today I looked it over and put it through the plantnet app and was intrigued. What do you all think? It was about 9-10 feet tall. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Blooms on 1st leaf crabs

    I put these crabs in the ground less than 2 months ago and despite being 3 feet or less tall, they bloomed like crazy. We pulled each flower off, but I’d have to think the tree would abort any fruit at this stage of growth right? Kerr MM111 (next to the obnoxious looking kid) Dolgo MM111...

    Vine with orange berries

    So I was out 'smornin' spreading some roundup to carve out a kill plot when orange caught my eye. I see a vine with brightly colored berries climbing a red oak. My initial reaction was to KILL KILL KILL with extreme prejudice because rarely do I read about vines that are beneficial. I resisted...

    Tell me about Sassafras

    I have questions about Sassafras. What do you all do with it? It seems like I get a lot of it along field edges and regrowth areas, and initially it makes everything quite thick and "brushy". But the "greenbrush" does eventually grow into what I feel are useless trees and everything thins out...

    Getting ready

    I've got the morning free, don't have to be at work until 1300 tomorrow. My trees from TWG have arrived and are leafed out and need to get in the ground. Its also supposed to rain tomorrow afternoon. So all signs point to me using the morning as well as using my time effectively. I can't be late...

    Shrub ID

    Also came across this shrub. Will keep an eye on it and adds pictures as it leafs out. Anyone have a guess as to what this is based on the looks? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What tree is this

    I've been doing just a little TSI, mostly removing junk maples and releasing oaks and I ran into a small cluster of this tree. Not sure what it was so didn't want to remove it in case it was something useful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Mushroom ball

    I was walking in the woods and saw 3 of these huge fungi balls. They were almost the size of a volleyball (notice the black walnut just below for size reference.). What in the heck were these things!? Kinda rolled and stayed together when I kicked it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cages for norways

    I've tried planting Norway Spruce unprotected in order to improve cover and they get destroyed by deer. What circumference cages do you normally make for norways? What about shrubs like dogwoods or buttonbush or elderberry? How long do you normally leave them on? Lumite needs to be removed...

    Black spots

    I believe this is a pear tree that doesn't look well. There are these black spots over the leaves and new growth and some of the edges look almost singed. Another pear nearby doesn't look as bad but has similar discoloration. Whats going on? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Tree id

    Newbie to tree ID. Wondering what tree this is and if there is any value to wildlife. There are some small oaks around, but I'd like to know what I'm cutting down first before going nuts this winter. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Crabapples, pears and apples

    I have a couple of questions for the forum. I'm just getting into fruit trees at my own farm; I started at my in-laws' with apples that I loved to eat the most: pink lady. Man I love those things. Yes there are some deer around that place, but they were more for me to eat. After they were in...
