2014 Progress and Results with Ash trees and Emerald Ash Borer Research

First visits to the Ash and Emerald Ash Borer EcoPeace Treaty research sites in 2014 were in February, 2014.  After a harsh winter, the Ash trees were leafing out rather late.  Since trees make food for themselves in their leaves, leafing-out late puts a stress on the trees.  They must use up their stored resources until the leaves are unfurled and in food production.

The structure of an EcoPeace Treaty is an up-side-down triangle. The organisms at the top, which are usually at odds with each other, come into dynamic balance when the agreement is mediated by Dr. Jim Conroy.  Please see the triangle in the slide show above.

At the end of the season, the Ash trees were healthy and strong.  There was no sign of Ash Borer at any of the Hudson Valley or New Jersey sites.

Hosta by the farmhouse were NOT marked, NOT part of the EcoPeace Treaty. Therefore, they were available to deer, and the deer ate those by the farmhouse.

However, Hosta by the demonstration gardens WERE MARKED. The deer avoided those. This shows a high degree of participation in the agreement by all parties and therefore a high degree of success.

2013 Successes and Lessons with the Deer and Gardens EcoPeace Treaty

On one visit, Basia and I bumped into the director on one hillside in the valley. She told the story of a morning where she came out to the very spot we were standing and looked across the valley.  She said she saw a family of deer walking down from the ridge toward the orchard. She said that they walked down to the green flags, stopped, looked around, then turned around and headed back up the hill. Her experience reinforced everyone’s confidence that the EcoPeace Treaty was working.

From April through mid-summer, 2013, the deer stayed out of the demonstration gardens and the orchard completely.

We know that the deer were present in the valley because Hosta plants, nearby at the farmhouse (but not in the demonstration gardens and not marked off with green flags) were chewed down.

As of July 30th, 2013, about 4 months after the EcoPeace Treaty… Read more…

2013 Deer and Vegetables EcoPeace Treaty Becomes Clearer

As the season is progressing, I am finding that the marker flag placement must be closer together.  It seems that deer cannot imagine a line between two flag if they can’t see both flags at the same time.  There has been a little nibbling at the vegetables.

We suspect that it’s the young deer.  But, for the most part, even the juice lettuces remain untouched.  That is a success.

2013 Deer and Vegetable Gardens EcoPeace Treaty Research Begins

The Director of an EcoLiteracy Center, farm, and community supported garden in New Jersey wanted to grow a demonstration vegetable garden and fruit tree orchard close to the edge of the forest. She knew about my successful work with crops grown at the nearby community supported garden.

She did not want to put up a fence in her valley in order to keep the deer from eating the vegetables and fruit.

The Director wanted an approach that was consistent with her values. She asked for my help.
