Come to think of it, I could use a flame weeder. I have hundreds of young
trees that I want to keep the vole habit away from their tuncks. Where do I
get one? Menards? A.M. Leonard.

Here,Here! Question for folks: Has anyone used a Flame Weeder to elimate
weeds around fruit trees? I was considering it, but didn't know if
Apple/other fruit bark could hold up to a scorch here and there. Or the
roots: do feeder roots react negatively to heat/burnt leavings? I would
think the ash/remains would benefit, but I am not sure the metabolic react
to a burned enviroment. I assume I should do this not too late in the
season, as to not stress the tree with any injury, and maybe only before
Solstice as to not trigger a soil biota reaction while in storage mode.
Well, any thoughts would be very welcome! Heron On Thu Nov 4 14:40 , Lon
