The discussion of timber management really shouldn't be about if you should implement it but really the discussion should be about when you should implent it. There are some serious misconceptions as well as misunderstandings of techniques when it comes to timber management. This podcast is devoted to explain the need and educate the audience on how to implement proper timber management techniques on your hunting property.
Landowners are plagued by analysis paralysis! One of the biggest issues is that people often will research so much information and end up hearing too much about so many contradicting recommendations that they don't even know where to begin working on managing their property. We hope this podcast will provide some clarity to your situation. We want to clearly explain the pros and cons of each timber management technique. Flush cutting, hinge-cutting, and hack-n-squirt are all tools in the tool-box, but we answer when they should be used and how they shouldn't be!
If you want to learn more about how to manage the timber on your property, listen and share with a friend who struggles from the same issue. Closed canopy timber is not helping the wildlife to the degree most people think, we need active management of this incredible natural resource.
