PEYTORILL applies the sciences of harvestable and extractable geological, energy, agronomical, silvicultural, human and natural resources and assesses the modernity of the environment politic across a regional, national and global map of people in places throughout history… especially right here in Connecticut.

I hope to send your families information from time to time, although having been called mad, I understand how I might be very scary, especially to Don, who told me to study bark dendrology. I do not know much about dendrology except for bark spuds.

I also would like to apologize for my methodologies. PEYTORILL is publishing on a WordPress.com platform and I occasionally have temporal conflicts pertaining to release of information. Today, for example, I wrote www.PEYTORILL.com/barns, wherein I offer to donate my farm’s standing timber for the construction of a timber frame barn for Ronald Wade. The offer stands, though I have yet to tell Ma. Accordingly, I know both Doug and I have Biltmore Scribner sticks and I have additionally duplicated mine onto tomato stakes several times. So, I hope we can all soon cruise my harvest site and determine what my holdings are relatively to structural timber available for the project.

Additionally, I hope to continue to provide you all with information regarding what we all pray for. A first book suggestion is the $250 textbook book “Forest Measurements” which I saw on the Walmart app today for under $20. And, as it has been upheld as an important text for decades it seems a good place to begin a collective study of industrial and political vocabulary and premise. It is red with a pine embossed in gold on the cover.

CT DEEP will also provide a book list to a visitor, or online, and yet we may find Doug in particular unwelcome to sit for the Forester licensure exam in Hartford. Thus, I will continue to send letters promulgating our own interpretive literacy in regards to carpentry, forestry, farming, hunting, ecology, and even environmentalism, and yet legal realities will remain. Remember that FPH and SFPH licensure only conveys licensure to formulate a harvest plan and to harvest by the job or hourly, and that only a Forester can legally think about the environment or work for a commission during forest products harvests, according to the Connecticut Forest Practice Act.

In writing to you all; I will focus on what I see as pertaining to Connecticut forestry, silviculture, logging, and to any milling I can comment on, as well as to carpentry and millwork with a focus on timber framing for the Moore’s. I believe Doug’s bobcat can power Fecon.com equipment and I personally believe that a John Deere cable skidder or two would truly benefit all of Connecticut in support of several bobcats with feller buncher implements.

Then, given that it is increasingly known that forest regeneration subsequent to clear-cuts varies inversely to clearcut size, the patchwork mosaic concept of very small clearcuts and forest thinning with optimal seed trees and seedlings planted by dibble becomes the basis for ecological forest farm silviculture. On my forest farm in Killigworth; I have demonstrated that partially forested pasture can sustain livestock, yet, I believe that crop production beyond native American fire ecology species often makes full sunlight requisite; specifically in cases where the crop is to be fermented and possibly distilled.

And, accordingly, a farming and agronomy paradigm different yet excluding neither the city nor the woods of today’s “no use or concrete” model in Connecticut will be my promulgation. The continuum of Connecticut land and land use history needs to be inclusive of several biometric eras pertaining to modern education of persons who care about the land. 1) pre-colonial indigenous peoples’ land use era, 2) indigenous people to colonial people’s land use transition era, 3) Union era and it’s three campaigns, and, 4) modernity and the rail and truck transportation sector era, with additional Insular biogeographic flux from air transport, and 5) Future land use era contextual to the end of the petroleum age and relative to fuels shortage capacity allocation and localism.

Thus, enhancement of Connecticut’s local organic farming base is extraordinarily important and “bio-engineered” change must precede emergency response change in a future scenario of total organic liquid carboniferous fuels depletion abroad and a compulsory shift to wonton overburden removal and anthracite liquifaction which will occur in an unplanned future.

Organic farm and farm structure research, design and engineering will be my focus for the Wade family, and I hope to bring to attention soil composition and soilless plant nutrient experimentation with the postulative hope that subsequent to a Moore’s Sawmill timber frame barn raising on the Wades Farms Fresh store site that a Texas Greenhouse Company greenhouse will be possible at that same location.

Today, Wade’s Farm is Bloomfield’s favorite local farm and farm stand, and although a new timber frame barn will occur with timber donations and participation; Bloomfield needs public support at Harris Agriscience center. The Harris Agriscience center is available for agriscience even during the summer when plants grow and interested children and families can possibly get an opportunity to assist with agricultural and silvicultural research initiatives. A greenhouse grant for a Wade Farm timber frame and greenhouse is the private option that could move this project beyond donated trees.

The public must at least consider making use of our municipal infrastructure near the high school for agronomy and silviculture, so, please remember that the Harris Agriscience center’s structure with it’s greenhouses are a seperate facility from our municipal high school town property. Mariculture, Aquaculture, Forestry, Taxonomy, Silviculture, and Agronomy research are all possible in both public and private contexts here in Bloomfield Connecticut.

I stipulate no fee because PEYTORILL is funded by the SSA. Please contribute and reply at your volition. I can easily create PEYTORILL.com extensions like /Moore’s Sawmill, /Wade’s Farms, /Logging, /Farming, /Timber, /Timber Framing, or /Agriculture and yet I believe photography and perhaps maps, schematics, and blueprints would be beneficial.

Thank you and God Bless,
