Jim Jem Speedy Dibble

Perhaps I will Dibble more of the Black Walnuts, American Chestnuts, White Pine Cones, and Hemlock Cones from all around my neighborhood.

Apple and Pear cores too.

I wish there were a way to better lash my Jim Jem Speedy Dibble and my walking staff to my Gregory Baltoro backpack. And, I think the Acorn squash seeds from recent dinners will be best sewn with a Dibber, not a Dibbler; and probably at around the vernal equinox.

The Dibble is better for tulips bulbs than a Dibb too, in my opinion, yet they are very similar hand implements. A few people could easily plant dozens, or even hundreds, of tulips in an afternoon with a Jim Jem Speedy Dibble, and the process is the same in silvicultural reforestation after a harvest procedure; when more desirable tree species which produce more food for wildlife in the form of tree nuts are dibbled into the post harvest thinning zones.

Hopefully my Bloomfield Hill neighbors will begin to see the requisite nature of natural disturbance mimicry where forest products harvesting could open the canopy in spaces of more or less than an acre along harvest operation skid trail networks.

Logging today can be practiced in the way Castor Canadensis and Native American fire ecology once marked this biome before the influx of the colonial era square plot ideations. So, when the forest environment is enhanced; lumber tree harvest can be accompanied by thinning for wildlife that can do such things as create upland fowl habitat, browse for ungulates, and the potential for a better forest withbetter trees.

In Fact, processes employing cordless reciprocating saws with demolition blades for sapling removal, McLeod Rakes for detritus and stick cleanup, and low intensity fire ecology procedures, or, more intensively; when chainsaws, cable skidders and Bobcat track machines with Fecon feller bunchers and brush hogs are used can and do create many possibilities in our biome.

Today, Forestry and Silviculture are in certain ways returning to meets and bounds methods and a resurgent ideology of indigenous people’s land use practices which were precursors to the rectangular coordinate system which accompanied the westward migrationof the USA’s Frontier. Yet, it was thus continuum of land delineation and demarcation advancents which eventually generated the methods of GIS which today are epitomized by the Hudson River School and CAD.

With my Gregory Pack

Ecology, art, landscaping and logging with silvicultural succession, and the mathematics of GIS and engineering across the biometric, geological and political landscape is a popular and burgeoning pursuit in need of leadership.
