Welcome SnoMower. We still have about 4-6 inches of snow on the ground. Plus many piles where it was pushed. We just had the tine rakes set up, and did get out on one lawn, then the next day the storm hit. That was over a week ago and we still might not get out for a least another week. I wonder if we will be able to get clean-ups done, tine rakes, and trim seasonal shrubs, before we need to start mowing. I think by the time the snow gone, and the lawns are dry, the grass is going to pop up green and growing. I wonder how we are going to get it all done. Then 1st round. Last year the big green trucks started spraying the second week in March. I have not seen one yet, they must not own snow boot's! Ha/Ha Those guys hurt our industry as much as they help it. PR

Ya, PR is only dealing with 6" on the ground, we got 18 in Green Bay and it isn't melting fast at all. I am wondering if the WDATCP will enforce the no fert on frozen ground against those turds who put it down too early? I haven't even got my product yet and probably won't until next week. It was a different view last year at this time. Oh well I will just enjoy the extended time off and work like crazy when I finally get the chance.

Imprelis Herbicide Warning! If you guys have some of this stuff you may want to stop using it. There is some questions about what it is doing to trees about 4 to 6 weeks after application. Spruce and Pine are getting the most damage. But others like Maple and Red Bud are showing signs also. I believe Reinders pulled it off their shelf's Wednesday. PR

Thanks PR,

I was close to trying some earlier this year but decided against it. I am glad I did. I sure don't need to be replacing trees on anyones property.

I am sticking with good old Speedzone. It has not let me down yet.

have a good summer.

Well we are still getting threw the Imprelis claims process with DuPont. So far so good. Well good as expected. Lots of damaged trees. But what I wanted to ask you guys is are you seeing Maple Tar Spot (RHYTISMA fungas) in your part of the state? How bad? We really just noticed it this year on our properties. Not real bad but I wonder if it will affect next years maples. Mostly on Red, Sugar, and Norway.
