I agree. Right now I have a specific query.
I am the proud owner of a swamp in Cape Breton. In it grows a mixed
variety of trees: spruce, juniper, birch (white & yellow), maple and alders.
In 1977 I cleaned out most of the alders, removed all the dead wood and
obviously sick trees, etc. The healthy birch trees which were left have
mostly died and some of the spruce have dead tops. Again I'm in the
process of removing dead and sick trees.
The wood is used for heating so it is not wasted.
Any suggestions on how to turn this into a healthy wood stand??
