Hello! Kirsten Lyons here

Sheela here. Hi everyone!

We had nice fluffy flakes in Port Huron yesterday but none stuck

ice flows drifting by on the St Croix

Just choosing diverse tree species!
srusinowski
33:54
Sorry my audio is not working
klyons15
34:02
I was thinking that there is a large area of Black Walnut in the park, which was planted long ago, and it’s a winner in climate change so we’ll probably keep it and add to it
srusinowski
34:03
And more resilient native plantings
Regine Skelton
35:22
My agency is working with the USFS to purchase areas of land that have been identified as "critical recharge areas" for the Hot Springs the city is named for. I will be responsilble for managmenet of these areas
Danielle Shannon
35:44
Great thanks Regine

A lot of the riparian zone in the park was cut to provide fisherman access. But of course it reduces shade and cover
Sheela Johnson
36:18
Maintaining refugia in great lakes coastal dune & swale ecosystems...
klyons15
36:47
I’m thinking about it but trying to stay focused on invasive species management for now
Regine Skelton

Transition: We have a few areas dominated by Black Locust, exotic for us, but we’ll probably allow it as the canopy in some places.
Regine Skelton
47:39
our state agency does a huge nursery for replanting forest harvests. I get some of the "leftover" overstock and pot them to distribute.Trees are propagated from seed so they're not clones
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
48:31
Transition is slow when you replace only a few hundred trees per year. B'ton has 12,000+ street trees and plants only several hundred replacement trees per year. So, change is going to be slow. Genetics is interesting but must rely on vendors.
john goodfellow
49:09
yes, the one related to genetic diversity
Regine Skelton
49:35
may not happen fast, but I think most of mine are feasible (BUT with drastically different timelines for completion)
john goodfellow
50:29
working on a brand new urban forest plan/program, so it is all new!
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
50:42
EAB tree loss provides an opportunity for more trees to be planted but also presents a crisis ($) that must be addressed. Worry is what's next - ALB?
klyons15
51:17
Well, I was thinking we’d eventually try to control all Black Locust everywhere on the site, but now I’m thinking we should keep it where it’s predominate
klyons15
51:52
So far these are small areas
Daniel Goldfarb
52:53
Because we deal with industrial sites on the indiana lake michigan coastal area, we are not as picky with the habitas we promote/prefer but encourage companies to plant a wider range of native species focusing on common and hardy ones
john goodfellow
53:07
Well said Chris, right on!
Regine Skelton
54:06
FYI I've heard of a potential new pest of the US Sweetgum, Called the Sweetgum Inscriber
klyons15
55:05
Right, what’s “native” to a formerly industrial site like what Daniel is talking about?
Regine Skelton
55:28
Whether something can survive in an area is different than whether something is a benefit to the ecosystem.Sure Bamboo can survive in many areas, and it can mitigate certain issues, but cause other issues when it escapes....
Daniel Goldfarb
55:40
we are using southern indiana and illinois species fo sure and avoiding boreal or northern ones... we don't manage "pristine" natural areas but we are focused on degraded sites and sites that ave been reclaimed by companies
Daniel Goldfarb
57:02
right on! thanks for the explanation
Regine Skelton
57:43
funding :)
Sheela Johnson
58:16
ongoing introduction of invasive species from public use
john goodfellow
58:23
initial reluctance (from public) to removal of large legacy trees
john goodfellow
58:38
Removal as risk abatment
Regine Skelton
01:00:04
we have some magnolias in AWFUL conditions in hot springs. the park planned to remove the worst few (with replacements to be planted immediately after) but the INTENSE public fantic response stopped it.
klyons15
01:03:04
We are cooperating with state agencies to develop invasive species education and outreach for paddlers to help scout for and map invasive species. Paddlers have a unique vantage point!
Regine Skelton
01:03:05
I have a scheme....I have some potted native trees. But I want to wager the removal of an invasive (bradford pear, mimosa, etc) for it
klyons15
01:03:36
Yes we’re using MISIN
Regine Skelton
01:03:50
Inaturalist is a great resource you might look into klons15
klyons15
01:04:31
Yes we like iNaturalist for native species, MISIN = Midwest Invasive Species Info Network

I expect that My City's Tree Map will be driven by state U&CF Coordinators on a state by state basis. So, folks need to both look for it and lobby their U&CF folks to pursue.
john goodfellow
01:28:22
Caroline lake 17% ash?! talk about "at risk"!
Regine Skelton
01:33:45
how did you get there ?
Regine Skelton
01:34:39
found it
Regine Skelton
01:48:57
more monsoons ! Glad my house is on a hill top !
Burney Fischer & Stephanie Freeman-Day
01:53:36
Philly map of former streams that are now buried, can't remember where I have seen it, tells a story of why stream flow has changed and there are more floods than in the past, unless the underground pipes are built large enough to handle everything (rarely, if ever the case).
