I am a member of The Allegheny Defense Project.
I find their (young people) cause to be just and honest.
I do not care for the way people try to misguide the younger generation out
of the ignorance of tree biology.
That is why I ask you to define yourself. Are you a biostitute Don Staples?
John, have you or have not taken COLLEGE LEVEL COURSES on biology, trees?
Any college level courses in natural resource departments?
If you've taken several short courses (a few days each) on arborist
subjects- and you have a lot of experience doing practical arborist work-
that's real nice- but, in most parts of the country- you need a college
degree plus experience to practice the arborist profession- at least a 2
year degree in most states.
You can learn some good stuff in a few days- but calling yourself a TREE
BIOLOGIST is overdoing it. A biologist is usually someone with at least a
masters degree in biology from an accredited university.
If you stick to your actual credentials, and stop exaggerating your
knowledge and ability- perhaps Don Staples will get off your back, otherwise
You focus on degrees more than you focus on the understanding of trees and
there associates. If you are certified, who certified the person that
repeat to Joe as well:
Ok it goes like this. Don says he's a forester. I ask him to define a
forest, to him. Me with my eny-bitty little 3.5 day work shops was able to
read data and write a page on what logging is to me, based on published
data. With your longer term education maybe you could define what logging
is to you (Don Staples). Please list page number and paragraph where data
you mention can be found. Training with out education makes robots.
Education without training makes?
I think you are really a tree farmer who needs help managing trees on tree
farms. Big difference from a true forester. Forest do not require that
they be logged for trees and their associates. I.e., reflecting on how I
And can you make me a copy of your references so I can read them. I will do
the same for you if you like. Tree farmers could place logs as nurse logs
in the woods when you take one out. A logger friend of mine built a unique
machine for moving logs back and forth in a tree farm. We have taken trees
into the woods and brought trees out with little impact as a result of this
We use logs from tree take downs that we do as a service.
I will tell you that I have met some very fine people who are loggers in the
edi-bitty 3.5 day workshops.
Where is your resume Don Staples?
We are doing some reforestation projects by bringing in some ecoart nurse
logs. We have one more large oak to bing in and then we will selectively
place many small diameter logs. This project will consist of planting in on
and around the ecoart nurse logs thus increasing the health of the mini
forest (nature preserve) by means of mentioned data here:
This is the type of forestry I do.
Let me tell you that those 3.5 day workshops really add up.
And yes, I am a want a be forester. To have a regular job as someone who
cared for the vitality of the trees and their associates of a forest based
on tree biology as defined in my dictionary. I list my definition of a
forest in my dictionary.
I listed what I mean when I say tree biology here:
I do not like noise.
John A. Keslick, Jr.
Beware of so-called tree experts who do not understand tree biology.
Storms, fires, floods, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions keep reminding us
that we are not the boss.
You say you are a tree biologist. Here is your definition of Tree Biology.
Tree Biology is the science that brings together anatomy, physiology,
genetics, evolution, ecology, and all other disciplines that focus on the
life of a tree as a system and how death brings healthier life.
So, Tell us, Tree Biologist, where you studied anatomy, physiology,
genetics, evolution, ecology, dendrology, silvaculture, oh, wait, you
Do not trust a "tree biologist" who has never studied biology.
You seem to be a typical dumb ass, who thinks all foresters do is cut wood.
Tell me, "tree biologist" do you work in virgin forests, or in the forests
(all east of the Mississippi) that have been created through forestry?
Where did Ezekiel get his degree to talk about a "FORESTS"??????????????????
[Ezekiel 39:10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut
down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and
they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them,
saith the Lord GOD. ]
Man's first responsibility was to care for the garden, (Genesis 2-15).
Where are your pages?
I meant to ask, as a close associate of Dr. Shigo, were you in the
secretarial pool, do the floors, or clean up around the office? It would
fit right in with Keslick being a biologist. Perhaps you should stay in
zone 6a and raise your flowers..
What are you? Please define yourself. I never said I was a biologist. I
said I was a tree biologist. A person who studied tree biology by a
professor with a world renown understanding of trees and their associates.
Besides trying to get people to cut wood out of the once fertile forest by
making claims of false forest health what do you do?
Define yourself, or just leave.
