      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Planting near a black walnut tree

Recommended Posts

I am cutting down a black walnut tree that is about 6 inches in diameter. It was never destined to be a nice tree. I want to plant a flowering crab about 10 feet away from where the old walnut was. I have heard that this may kiil my new flowering crab. Can anyone tell me how much of the old roots I need to remove or how far away I need to stay? Thanks for any help.

I am not positive how you would go about it but I would not assume the roots would have anything to do with it. Walnuts are very acidic and will leave residual acidity in the ground making it hard for nonacid loving plants to grow. Since you are getting rid of the tree there wont be any more acidity being added to the soil unless you have more walnut trees near by or pine trees. About the only thing I can think to do to make the spot more livable for your tree is to get a soil testing kit and find out how acidic the soil is and then find something that is a base to neutralize the soil to a ph that the tree will grow in. Also pay attention to what ph the tree likes and find one that will match the ph you have. Also I would talk to a knowledgeable person at your local nursery for advise and help on what to do.

waskawood,

Hmmm...for some reason it won't hyperlink this last one but if you cut and paste it into your browser, it gives a fairly comprehensive list of plants that are susceptible and resistant.

Hope it helps.
