Habitat Heros #120: Hinge Cutting versus Clear-Cutting

Yup, we went there! Hang on tight we opened up a can of worms during this podcast. It was time to set the record straight when it comes to managing timber for wildlife. Time to end the glory days of hinge cutting. This technique has been glamorized and praised for many years now. The new strategy has seemed to occupy the headlines while clear-cutting has lost its glory of a sound management technique? During this podcast, we stack these two techniques up side by side and give you the cold hard facts, pros, and cons for each practice.

It is time to think critically about the techniques we choose to manage the landscape. Future generations are begging us to make wise decisions for them down the road. We have to forget the short term or the "quick fix" mentality and think what does this look like down the road? We've already seen a drastic change and evolution of timber over the last 100 years based on poor decisions. Hinge cutting is like doing the job halfway and still only receiving half the results.
