Shadowed by Giants of Industry, KOCH Bros. GP Brunswick Cellulose

Having spoken with several local newspaper editors, no one was willing to step out of their comfort zone, CLEARLY investigate the problem of localized pine bark & lime dumping on our agriculture and forest lands. Apparently no valid tests were publicly available nor were my attempts to obtain testing analytics via Wittmer Agricycle Inc. of Callahan, FL or their representative embedded at GP Brunswick Cellulose or the truck driver contracted as consumer, Joey Denison of Offerman, GA ever successful. I was refused any information from these entities during my inquiries which led to an investigation over the last six months into the elemental composition of the materials being passed off to recipients under the Wittmer-Agricycle infamous self-published License #L013. Farmers whom have trusted State of GA authorities at GA Consumer Ag Inputs, University of GA Cooperative Extension Offices i.e. their county farm agents to protect GA agricultural interests to make certain Soil Amendment materials are well tested and safe to apply may be as shocked as I have been to learn about the abysmal testing of these materials, or lack thereof.
