Global warming, speedy trees

This morning's Ithaca Journal doesn't yet cover last night's contentious Town Board meeting (which I'll do this weekend), but it has two letters to the editor with Dryden connections. Nariman Mistry of Dryden writes about climate change and the greater weather fluctuations it causes, while Stanley Scharf writes that "Root Production Method"-grown trees could help Cornell, and that "this novel nursery system is coming very soon to the Dryden/Ithaca area, making these superior trees available locally."

There's an article on the county applying for an Empire Zone which says:

In Dryden, land including New York State Electric and Gas and Wilcox Press, along with land in the village that was annexed from the town would be included.

My understanding from last night's board meeting is that the area north of the Village is larger than just the annexed zone, but we'll see.
