First, a 250 year old Bur oak gets moved at the Ann Arbor campus of the U of Michigan to make way for the expansion of the Ross Business School – controversial, because it was pricey to do, but in the immortal words of George Pope Morris, “Woodman, spare that tree!”

Also some additional stories you may find of interest:

A CSIRO test plant in Australia has broken a world record and proved solar power could efficiently replace fossil fuels. “… this step proves solar has the potential to compete with the peak performance capabilities of fossil fuel sources,” says Dr. Alex Wonhas, CSIRO’s Energy Director.

orchard2Research is being done to ascertain the role of various antibiotic-producing soil microbes in the composition and variety of tree species in tropical rainforests.

And—seems to be catching on, this— The U of Pennsylvania community is coming together to plant a campus orchard. These guys aren’t the first, and hopefully won’t be the last.

Retired surgeon, Dr. Salem Saloom, from Evergreen, CO, takes special pride nurturing the Longleaf Pine, a plant species wiped out by intensive commercial logging more than a century ago. His 2,200 acres of pine forest is part of an effort, spearheaded by the federal government, and supplemented by conservationists and private landowners, to restore what was once called “the Piney Woods.”

An announcement – Researchers have found some survivors of fatal Emerald ash borer beetle infestations of our native ash trees, and are asking for the help of private citizens in finding more in areas that have NOT been treated with pesticides. See http://nrs.fs.fed.us/SurvivorAsh to describe the whereabouts of ash trees they believe would be candidates.
