      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 Tree in wet area

Recommended Posts

What trees can tolerate a wetter area. I would like to plant a couple of trees in my yard and the area is the lowest part of the yard and it is also the wettest.

all the trees mentioned here will do well. How tall do you want this thing getting? For a smaller tree/shrub, you could plant something like a Pagoda Dogwood, which will get 10-15 feet tall and have very attractive flowers

Ive been interested in the Tamerack. I see them in marshes on the way up to Leach lake. The are an evergreen that turns gold in the fall. I believe they loose there needles in the winter.

I dont think they would do to well in my yard being the soil is rather sandy and dry. But you have a wet area I think the Tamerack will do well.

Not sure on the tolerance to wet soils, but my parents have a river birch and that thing is huge after only 4 or 5 years.

Not sure if you have a residential setting or woodsy. For woodsy look into a couple of black spruce for winter color. Slow growing but they tolerate the wet soils well.

Don't the river birch have some sort of worm or something. Seems like I've seen a lot of them in yards that die after about 10-15 years, just when they seem to be getting nice.

Go to a reputable nursery in your area and ask them, and then make sure they give you a one year warranty on the tree. Then plant it correctly following the directions of said nursery to a T. Sometimes there's a problem with trees that come from sources that are more than 50-100 miles from where you are so be sure to buy something that was grown locally at a nursery near your house.

The silver maples do very well in wet areas and grow extremely fast. The problem with willows and silver maples is that they are very prone to storm damage from having such soft wood. Trees with harder wood will be a bit more slow growing. If you want a tree for this area that will hold up in a bad storm go with the Swamp White Oak. Only in the worst storms do Oaks suffer damage.
