Changes. Back to the future, or forward to the past. Changes good or bad? Just changes.
Timber cutters are at work on my farm. Mark W. Smith Logging of Augusta is taking diseased Pin Oak, some White Ash and messy Maple out of my woodlot over across Moore’s Run from Doghouse. He’ll do in a couple months what nature has begun doing over several years.
I hate to see those good old trees go, but they’re dying anyway, attacked by Hypoxylon Canker. It’s a disease that gets under bark and kills branches as it climbs.
