This is correct 100%. Like I said he and I get along fine and he granted me permission to use his land as I like.

We all have our druthers, mine would be he thinned it. Money isn't an issue with him, he owns a house down the road.... lets an old hillbilly without a pot to piss in and his lazy son and his live in live there 100% rent free.

The equipment is all his, HUGE tracked feller bunchers, excavators, dozers, skidders the works.

Last I saw him was a couple weeks ago and he said he and his son had covid..... hope they're OK!

If the tooth fairy gave me that 150ac , and my goal was wildlife habitat at least equal to turning enough $ from a hay operation to cover my beer and primers budget in retirement , I could have tweaked a little more better-er .

IF every surrounding property was subdivided next month , and that 150ac would have to be self contained ecosystem, the lack of either mature-ish trees and thick enough brush for cover would suck . So long as near by properties stay similar- ish , the locality as a whole at least breaks even .

The ranch I used to work on had hundreds of acres in the mountains. They logged it 16 years or so ago. New growth is well beyond plentiful now and probably 10 years ago a pine beetle came in and killed any older trees left and surrounding the area (but left the young ones). Now there are millions of dead trees surrounding that area and God forbid when the lightning or some idiot camper in the forest service land catches the place on fire, its all going up - land, livestock, homes, livelihoods. Logging and replanting is a sustainable way to harvest a natural resource before it gets destroyed by something else. If you want to see scars, them damn windmills they are building along mountainsides are scaring the land pretty bad.

I doubt any invasive garbage will find its way there other than via birdshit.
That is a major contributor after wind.
If he's clearing for pasture or crops, that's how you do it. If he's timbering, normally, the timber company only takes out certain species and leaves the rest for seeding/regrowth.

That all depends where you live and what the watershed laws are. Do that in AA County and you will be arrested and will be paying plenty of fines.

The are worse clear cuts like those for a strip mine.

Had friends clear cut including stumps to about 50 acres but they sowed grasses, food plants and wildflowers because they wanted a meadow for the kids, grandkids, livestock and wildlife to enjoy and play.

Their neighbors bitched and complained about the logging but didn't mind being invited to pinics, campouts and flower picking.

Given a few years and that'll be awesome pasture land. Hawks will have field mice to eat.

If I had that land I would clear large sections and leave large swaths wooded. Fire brakes, grazing land and then bedding zones and woods for animals.

He said you can do as you like right? Plant some deer delicacies so that they will come right to you.
