Re: [APD] Balanced Ecosystems, etc.
This should reactivate the list.
"-------------but the key to any eco system is
balance----and any effective balance is not static------a desired look is
not mother natures way------the natural eb and flow within any ecosystem
is---------clymax populations in an eco system------tend to be self
correcting and . . . "
A balanced but ever changing ecosystem! Why does this make me remember the
second hour of cocktail parties, where a conversation that started out to be
intellectually interesting developed into a chat about a man who lived in a
hollow tree in the next town?
"----the lake is about 1 mile long---well stocked----the plan is to keep it
as Daniel Boone found it and never let it be developed----"
The planners will have to find a way to remove the non-native species from
this large, well-stocked pond. Lots of luck with that.
But: I have an 85 year old northern catalpa that produces large amounts of
seed pods every autumn. Frankly, it is a pain of a tree that produces many
huge leaves to be raked as well as the messy pods that nothing eats, as far
as I can see.
If you will give me a mailing address, I will be happy to send you some
pods. In fact, you can have the whole tree if you want it.
