The feature article in the 3rd Quarter “Overstory” is about how to increase revenue by planting high level of pine genetics. The article under “Delta Hardwoods” gives viable (and perhaps better) alternative species to sawtooth oak when the objective is production of winter mast. There is also a very good article on the importance of estate planning for the landowner. Click on this LINK to read them all!

The first BioBlitz was in Jackson, MS, and was a big success – over 100 people spent the day counting species of birds, insects, plants, trees, mammal tracks, etc. This helps to measure the biodiversity of a given area. It’s free, it’s fun, and it’s educational. If you missed the first one, and are looking for a Saturday project for yourself and/or your kids come on out Saturday October 4th. Check out the details on the brochure at this LINK.
