I've been working under a WHIP contract with the NRCS on my property. Been in the planning stages for about a year and a half, but the time has finally come. My loggers moved in this week. Select cut to encourage oak regeneration. I'm super excited to see this taking place, but also scared to death. I'm sure that I've got questions that I don't even know to ask. So feel free to add any input. Also, the Dept. of Forestry delivered 425 wildlife bushes seedlings yesterday. Gonna have a busy weekend getting them in the ground.
Got a road put in for the log truck

Got the loading deck cleared out

Got some logs on the ground

Those cleared staging areas should be a good place to turn over and plant.

Same action on our place in West TN. They've been at it for a few months now. Looks like a massacre, but I know it'll be worth it.

I got $350/1000 bd ft for some poplar last week but it was small.Im making the best money off of red oak right now, just because I have big ones bringing $1200/1000 bd ft for the butt logs. White oak is bringing me in some good money as well. I have a stack of mill reciepts to go through.

Yep glad to see red oak go up. It hit bottom in 2008 and finally recovered last year.
