Tree of Heaven, Toxic or Not

In the past few years several workers have broke out with poison ivy / oak rash after doing removal of "Tree of Heaven" branches, limbs and roots. Though I cannot find convincing evidence or literature. Any info on the species would be great.

plant identification

I have several of these plants, but no one seems to know shat they are. It has a tap root and its leaves and flower stalk come from the base. The flower stalk has many smaller alternating leaves and branching stems at the top with small inconspicuous flower at the tips. It smells a little like mustard.

Raising turkeys

My name is Jeanne von Borstel and I live SE of Grass Valley Oregon. We are going to raise some turkeys (just to wander around our barn yard as pets). I was reading that I should contact you and see if our area has a problem with Blackhead disease. I should mention I started my chicken (just for laying hens) a year ago. Do I need to medicate my turkeys and if so with what? Also, I am aware that baby turkeys are very fragile. Would it be alright when they get past their new stage and start looking like little teenagers, if they stay with my chickens, until they are big enough to be safe walking around our barnyard? My chickens are NOT free rangers and will always stay in the pen.

Hello, We are wanting to plant fruit trees on our property in Grass Valley/Moro, Oregon and need information about what type of trees would do well for a small orchard. Thank you in advance for any advice or direction you can provide. Barb Spady

Oregon Raceway Park

Located just East of Grass Valley O.R.P. is the largest race track in Oregon. Now in our 9th year we are continuing to develop the facility. We have two large new areas that have been graded and are in bare dirt that we would like to stabilize and plant with grass. Their use is for tent camping and parking areas. We have a 15' Toro Mower (golf course type) and need a hearty and traffic resistant grass that will hold up with a minimum of care. What can you recommend?
