    I have, I've told him all about that. He won't budge. I've done everything except show him documented proof. If anybody has any that I can print out send it to me and I'll show him. Maybe I should print this topic out, maybe that will convince him.

    Could you not move the plants that are getting run over at least? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    The trail is not used very much, so there's not alot af harm done by the four wheelers. Actually it is a very good place for them to grow because there is alot less plant competion on the trail. Still there is something wrong about seeing pitcher plants being ran over with a four wheeler. It just don't seem right.

    Maybe the fire in Yellowstone would convince him if you havent tried that one already.

    Thumbs up

    Hi;
    As a Naturalist I am quite aware of the importance of burning land in the Southeast. It not only benefits Sarrs, but is certainly of paramount to the survival and enhancement of the populations of many wild animals including deer[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] . Now how 'bout that. As any Wildlife Biologist can tell yo brother, deer and Wild Turkey not only benefit from controlled burning, but will explode, along with Fox Squirrel. Most people are not aware of this, and think that deer need grown up wilderness. Not so. The deer are probably drawn to this site because of the stuff found along with the minors (grasses, sedges, annual and perennial forbs), and when it grows over, the deer will move on.
    No, deer won't eat minor, but the things growing with it.
    Alternatively, you can go in and cut down the scrubby overgrowth, as they do in some bogs in the western part of the state.
    Note; the Southeastern Indians (Native Americans, if you prefer, but I was born here, and am part Cherokee) routinely burned the woodlands to enhance the deer populations. You can look this up, as it is documented in many places.

    Whatever you have to do, do it! I know many folks are behind you on this, and I also know that a burn has always enhanced the land. We had some bad forest fires in Montana where I am from, but the deer populations were always at their best then, declining only when food sources were shaded out by heavy forest. Didn't do our drosera population any harm.
