Oak Wilt stop cutting date

What is the date to stop cutting red oaks in the Brethren area of Manistee County this year? I have heard and read conflicting dates, one being April 1, and a newer publication being April 15.,4669,7-192-47796-409559--,00.html

I would like to get some oaks down this spring, but want to know when to stop and get the oaks transported out of the woods.

Signs -

Copied below is an excerpt from our zoning ordinance as it pertains to signs. In light of last years Supreme Court case and recent training obtained within the State of Michigan, I have a very specific question regarding 1015.A (1,2 and 3).
1. #3 immediately implies that (within the same zoning district) we are to treat signs for different 'uses' with different standards. [Non-residential signs must be ON the building vs. the preamble indicating signs are permitted in setback areas]
QUESTION: Is it appropriate (in this case) to insist that the Hardware Store / Gas Station must place the sign on the face of the building but the (Attorney / Doctor) operating out of their residence (or perhaps a 'politician') may place the sign in more significant location within the setback with both faces visible to traffic, keeping in mind that both requests are within the SAME ZONING DISTRICT?

Thank-you for your observations!

What kind of caterpillar is this?

This caterpillar was crawling in the grass and moss. It was 3-4 inches long and about an 1/2 ” wide. Beautiful Nature. Very curious. Thank you Karen
