On the lease we got there is a nice 1.5 acre field along the road. What would be the best and fastest growing things to plant along the edge to "hide" the field. Was thinking cedars but I know there is better things than that. Also when would be the best time to plant them?

cedars i would think would be a little on the slow growing side. Pines are always an option. white pines if topped will bush creating a decent screen like cedars but may grow a little faster.

It depends on how high of a visual barrier you need. I've seen a few rows of closely planted corn work well. Prairie switchgrass will grow quickly and give you a thick 3.5-4' barrier. Autumn olive will provide a great barrier, but will become a major problem if you don't bushhog the field on a regular basis.

There is about a 3'-4' burm going up from the road, putting the field at that level. would need something that stays close to the ground and grows maybe 3'-4' tall and thick!

Stupid poachers are out there! Found 2 bucks just down the road that just had the back straps and hams cut out and then they tossed them in a ditch!

TWRA need a place to put robo-deer in henry county???
Would glady let yall use the place!
