Okay, I have 20 acres in central Wisconsin. About 10 acres of pine/hardwoods. The other 10 acres can be wetland depending on the amount of rain. To the north is a seasonal stream that can be deep if there is enough rain/snow. There is a mix of redwood, solitary pine trees, and small clumps of brush every so often.
What I would like to do is plant something in the wetland. It is not easily accessible except through a 200-300 yard piece of land so I can't get a vehicle in. I was thinking of clearing out a piece of the pines in about 2 acres of pines I have. Since I have about a 3 acre swampy field to the south, I figured cutting out about a 100 foot by 100 foot section of pines, trees, and brush. I would plant some fast growing clover in there (No Plow, Throw and Grow, etc.). This would allow the sunlight to hit it. However, I want to make use of the swampy land. Hauling in more dirt by hand will take forever. To improve the value for deer hunting, I was thinking of planting some trees that can handle some flooding or wet conditions.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
