Yes you can get money to plant clear cut back in pine. I'm going to check on it Monday.

question, i live in an all hardwood area, no pines. i know that pine trees are a quicker return on the dollar, looking at the long term picture, when we are all dead and gone, will pines as they mature be the best habitat for all the wildlife?

chaneylake... imho would be no. pines do not provide much if any wildlife food. I would plant persimmons and oaks. But of course there is alot more to it than that you must have a continued program of thinning and clear cutting to provide the most benefit.

i agree with the oaks, etc. at chaney lake the primary goal is mature hardwood timber. it has been in my family for over 3 generations and the property has always been managed properly and select cut. only harvesting the trees above 20-22" except for isolated reasons, beaver damage, etc. the hunting side is a fringe benefit to this piece of property, basically providing a small amount of income to improve roads, bridges, etc. being an all hardwood area i, my father, and my grandfather deceased, accept that this piece of property will only produce income about every 20-25 years depending upon growth of timber and current market conditions. it is wonderful to watch the hardwoods grow and mature
