"Not sure I really have an answer. Is it possible other vegetation is overtopping them and shading them out? They are very intolerant and need full sunlight. The root systems also produce suckers which is what you may be seeing. Many times these…"

"Over the years I've watched many young Sassafras trees die, now the only large tree died, presumably overwinter because it never leafed out.  New seedlings survive, but eventually they die.  No obvious insects on top of bark (never…"

Jonathan Kays replied to Carla Porter's discussion Sassafras trees dying
"This not something I have heard about. I would look closely to see if there are any insects or other identifiable reason. Are the trees slowly loosing their leaves? How  are they dying?"

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mr.frankkwabena30@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.


Frank.

hi Carla,

Just wanted to touch base with you about the Public Hearing on Oil Drilling/Seismic for off the east coast/Chesapeake Bay.  I had attended the 7:00pm hearing but heard from Doug Aus that there were 4 people who testified against drilling at the earlier 1 pm hearing (including Doug) and as i understand you also are against it and testified.  Just wanted to share with you a couple of links:

Here is a link to the youtube video i've posted from the 7pm hearing:  at minute 3:55 you can see all the empty chairs (only 5 people plus 1 news reporter attended at 7pm and i was the only person to speak):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1iUoreS1hM&list .

Here is a link to my presentation (they allowed me to talk past the 3 minute time-period since no one else spoke so i spoke through the whole presentation): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/76377218/2012-04-25___PublicHearingAnnapolisMD.pdf .

 

I am very curious on who the other 2 people were that spoke at 1 pm?  I had called Anthony Caligiuri at Nat'l Wildlife Federation 2 weeks prior as well as Sierra Club and they both had stated they would send one person to speak-- so just wondering if the other 2 people were from these 2 organizations?

-Hope to hear from you if for no other reason than just to know the others who are opposed in our state:  there are so few of us, i think it would be good to hook up.  I've found lots of people in other states through facebook who attended their public hearings:  unlike Maryland, the states of NC, VA, and NJ had good turnouts.  You can find me in facebook at:  http://www.facebook.com/#!/carol.green.712 .  Please friend me if you can so we can share notes.

 

Best Regards,

~Carol
