CFA-On-The-Air: From the Forest Wednesday’s 6PM – 7PM WIOX ROXBURY 91.3FM or www.wioxradio.org Wednesday Night’s Show: Catskill Trees with Gary Mead – Redcedar Every 3rd Wednesday we talk to Gary Mead about a different tree found in or near the Catskill Mountains. Every tree is different, and there is always something unique & special we find out about it. We’ll be discussing the REDCEDAR tree. Redcedar isn’t too common in the higher elevations of the Catskills, but it can be seen readily as one descends into any of the surrounding valleys. It’s a good tree for wood art, rustic furniture, fence-posts, and wildlife too. Gary will tell us his experiences with the REDCEDAR tree in his mill or in his art. Gary Mead is the owner of Fruitful Furnishings. Fruitful Furnishings began in 1979 as a custom furniture shop. Within ten years, a sawmill was added for producing dimension parts and providing custom sawing, planing, and kiln drying services to customers wishing to furnish their homes with wood from their own trees. More recently, Gary has added Gary Mead Gallery – located at the mill-site – which showcases one-of-a-kind pieces made from wood. Tune in at 91.3 FM or stream online @ www.wioxradio.org to learn more. WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE FOREST? It’s going to be a very fruitful summer and fall… so far. Pear, apple, and peach seem to be flowering abundantly and small fruitlets can already be seen at lower elevations. Blueberries are looking good too. We’ll see.
