Who's helping sawmills, lumbermen & loggers?

There's so much in the news about how the farmers are being hurt by both the economic/trade restrictions and mother nature, but there is NOTHING about the devastation that our hardwood industries are suffering. Emerald Ash Bore, Oak Wilt, Beech Bark disease.. to name just a few. Who's giving money or tax breaks to the numerous sawmills, lumber companies & loggers? Please, help bring this situation to the national level. Federal subsidies and tax breaks are needed!!! Generation owned sawmills are closing down because of the sanctions between Canada/USA and the elimination of some species of hardwoods. PLEASE HELP!

Horse Pasture on Beaver Island

We have a new property on Beaver Island and would like to pasture a few horses and grow our own hay for them. There seems to be a problem growing quality hay on the island, most people import it from the mainland. Is there a general problem with the soil here? Would big bluestem make a good hay? Thanks, Sally Stebbins

High Phosphorus levels

Hello! I received my soil analysis results and discovered that phosphorus levels are very high (91ppm). The area sampled was a large patch (about 20x20 ft) where grass has been uniformly discolored (brown). What would cause high phosphorus in that particular area? Thank you!

Planting suggestions for meadow

two years ago we had two acres of red pine harvested. We have since cleaned up all the debris and want to plant something to keep erosion in check. Not interested in trees as the reason the trees were harvested is they impeded the view of the lake and countryside from our home. It's an area that does not have irrigation nor do we want to go to the expense of putting irrigation in. So we'd like a nice looking meadow that is low maintenance, no mowing required (beyond perhaps once per year). Anything you can suggest is greatly appreciated.
