Mature Outdoor ~UPD~

Since 2015, DEC's Young Forest Initiative has been increasing young forest habitat on Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) across the state. Now we're also improving habitat of all ages classes of forests on WMAs. A forested landscape with a better balance of young, intermediate, and mature forest will provide habitat for a diversity of wildlife and help many species that are declining.

Mature forests are approximately 50-140 years old with large trees. Much of the forest in New York State today is mature forest. Currently, there is very little late successional forest (>140 years old) on WMAs.

Species that live in mature forests also benefit from young forest and use it for food and cover, including black bears, bobcats, deer, moose, and many forest interior songbirds. Pollinators also benefit from the flowering plants in forest openings.

When growing outdoors, weed plants will start flowering, or blooming, after the summer solstice, when the daily amount of light starts to decrease. Plants will start developing pre-flowers, as mentioned above, telling you that flowering has initiated.

Evergreen ferns are a prevalent outdoor plant in the Pacific Northwest (PNW). They thrive in indirect, bright light. A few hours of morning sun or gently filtered light through the cover of trees is the perfect scenario.

Cut back any outdoor fern fronds with pest infestation or disease to the base of the plant throughout the year. If the entire plant is unhealthy, cut it back to the ground, so the disease does not spread.

With the right care and attention, evergreen outdoor ferns can be a beautiful addition to any garden. Trimming them each year will help keep the fronds looking their best and ensure that the plant remains healthy and full of life for many years.

Ruta chalepensis contained concentrations of furanocoumarins 25-50% of those found inR. graveolens both in the whole leaf and on its surface. On the leaf surface of plants grown all year indoors in a greenhouse, they increased steadily between November 1 and December 14 on mature upper and lower leaves. New growth upper leaves on December 14 contained less than mature upper leaves. Plants transferred from outdoors to the greenhouse showed decreased concentrations after the first two weeks, followed by recovery both in the whole leaf and on the leaf surface. Proportions of xanthotoxin and bergapten to psoralen changed during the experiment. On the leaf surfaces and in the whole upper leaves of the indoor plants, the proportions were often similar, but in the transferred plants, in most cases, psoralen was less than bergapten or xanthotoxin in the upper leaves and markedly less in the lower leaves. Implications of these findings for possible effects of environmental changes on secondary plant metabolism are discussed. 041b061a72
