Give Them What They Need

 

When you stare at a towering oak what do you see? Aside from beauty and strength, you should see a tree that delivers a vital food source to your deer herd. However, as trees grow and withstand the tests of time, we tend totreepaks_ll ignore them a bit. We take those monster trees for granted and just expect them to leaf out every year and do what they’ve always done. The truth is, these trees shouldn’t be ignored. Mature producing oaks need fertilizer and BioLogic’s Tree-Paks are just the ticket.

Specifically formulated for mast-producing trees, these Tree-Paks have a 5-10-15 formulation of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The Tree-Paks provide a simple way to give trees everything they need in a matter of minutes.

Start by pacing off the circumference around a given tree’s canopy in yards. Then, open your bag of Tree-Paks and start dropping packets on the ground every yard around the tree’s entire circumference. When you’re done you should have a ring of Tree-Paks on the ground. Next, insert a shovel into the earth in front of each packet, lift up on the shovel and insert the Pak under the dislodged earth. Doing this will help your mature oaks stay healthy and produce more oaks for your deer herd.

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.
