The loggers finally showed up yesterday and started logging my 6 acre area. Hopefully it won't be to late when they get done to get some trees replanted. I have small feet size 7 but for reference this is the size of the timber on the back side of this ridge all mostly poplar. Hopefully clear cutting this and letting it grow thick with the trees I'm planting will improve my habitat and hunting in the future years. [img]http://[/img]

Sounds good,you will have to work hard to keep the regrowth from over whelming whatever you plant.Good luck!

Question: I'm doing this to create some cover for the deer since I have zero on my property.. Should I try and remove some of the tree tips that are left to open up the forest floor or should I just leave them lay. I have an outdoor woo furnace so obviously the bigger limbs left will be coming out for firewood. Just looking for some input..

I'd leave them laying. Deer love to bed up in the treetops. Will give them some cover until everything else starts growing up.

That's what I was thinking. Will they be able to navigate the mess of tree tops or will it discourage them until they start to rot down?

Absolutley. I see deer forageing and investigating my work all the time.

Deer can handle some tree tops in the way.
