The first 3 photos are what the landowner got The last 3 photos are the motor and hydraulic oil that ran onto my property and eventually into the lake 700' down hill

Did you tell anybody beyond this forum? That type of oil spill is supposed to be contained.

That said, every single gallon of chain saw bar oil sold goes onto the ground. Most hydraulic oil eventually goes onto the ground in the form of small leaks dispersed over a wide area. As such, those lubricants are not harmful on the grand scale of things.

That's about all that can be done, especially on such a small spill. It's as hard to harvest anything in agriculture without pollution as it is to drive our vehicles without creating pollution - doesn't happen.

MOFGA recommends mixing mushroom spore into the chain lube oil.

Then every stump cut is inoculated with mushroom spore.

Mushroom spore can survive in bar oil? Never would have guessed.

I learn a lot while attending MOFGA worshops.

I once met a lady in a huge straw hat, her picture was even posted on this forum, I met her while I was rushing from one such workshop to another.

Gee, sounds like someone I might like to know... LOL

both K and I are looking forward to this year's fair, and being able to attend more than one day and actually take in some of the forums and learn that sort of cool stuff!
