I'm not sure if this is where I should be directing my question, but hopefully 
someone might be able to answer it.  I inherited a small woodlot (16 acres).  
Before the estate was settled the woods were logged (nothing under 18" was 
taken) and a good stand was left.  My problem is that now that the canopy has 
been opened up the woods is over-run by berry bushes (black caps).  I have a 
home in the woods and would like to get these bushes under control without 
using chemicals if possible (I have a 2 year old running about).  Any ideas 
how to get rid of the bushes?
