Two years ago the 70 acres myself and my sons hunt was logged - 1,200 trees. They only took the big ones, so there is still plenty of trees and shade, therefore the underbrush hasn't grown wild. However, they left the tree tops! What used to be an easy walk in most places, is now a tangled mess of tree tops everywhere. Even doing a deer drive has become quite difficult. We stopped seeing the number of deer we used to see, but couldn't tell if it was the tops that caused it. Now we are convinced it is.
So, we are considering cutting multiple lanes about 20"-24" wide, spanning the length and width of the property, which will allow them to access the land more easily, strolling as they used to. Is this crazy? Will it increase traffic? Please let me know if anyone else has encountered similar circumstances and what you did about it.
