None taken Andy,

I can be quick to jump in defending the forum. To quick sometimes. Your welcome here, oh say, even as much as Kevin. :D

Keep asking those aspen questions because we do have the resources to answer any of them. If not here I have some friends in what they perceive to be high places :)

No disrespect assumed, Andy.  I was afraid we had hurt your feelings.  Glad you recognize a sense of humor.  Sometimes we get carried away  but..........what do you do when you don't have an answer an still want to say "Howdy"   Yep we have guys here with answers but we don't all have'm.  Kinda lots of specialized areas here and we're all pulling each others chain.  Glad to have you aboard.

Iím glad you asked that question Andy.  I was kind of wondering the same thing myself. :D

Note that the Bibbyman didnít even try to answer your question.  I wouldnít know aspen from an aspirin.  Where I live if it ainít oak, walnut, hickory, ash, red cedar, cottonwood, sycamore, or hackberry then its something itís something standing in the way.

Now the husband of my niece IS a professional forester.  Wrote his masters thesis on the Savannas of Nebraska.  He is a Yahoo because Iíve been to Nebraska and there ainít no trees or savannas. But.. You know what?  Your Federal Government supplied him a brand new Dodge Durango to drive from the middle of Missouri to Nebraska to do forest studies.  He needed the Durango so he could pull the boat he took along! ::)

Ask the Questions so us Foresters can stay "sharp". We just need enough local information for best response or try to get you to a local forester for help.

Forestry is not an exact science when all resources such as soil, air, water, timber, recreation, wildlife, forage, and Wilderness are considerations.

I heard someone say that forestry isn't rocket science.  It's much harder than that!

On the other hand, if we foresters "mess up," we'll be retired (or dead) before anybody figures it out!  The same can be said of a lot of natural resource professionals.  Case in point:  once upon a time the Soil Conservation Service was saying, "Yeah, plant some of this kudzu.  Makes excellent forage."

With rocket science, you know you've made a mistake pretty quickly.  Case in point:  basically anything NASA has done in the last decade.

(Hope I didn't meander too far off the subject.)
