I am the owner of a small tract of land (38 acres). One month ago the
80% of the land was forested. I am interested in planting unique species,
re-establishing species, and developing some of the property for home site
and fields. I have been working with a forester on reforestation of the
property. Typical burning, KG blade (clearing), row buildup, and planting
will cost me about $3500 if I plant the whole cut area.
I just drove from NC to FLA and then to ALA. I don't like the look of
rows of pine. I have decided that I don't want to replant the total area
in Loblolly Pine. My property is high, wet, with some dry areas.
Stumpage in cut areas is hardwood/pine mix. Location is Onslow County in
Eastern NC. Soil predominately Rains. Location on highway in town with
easy access. Goals: diversification, economic return, recreation,
education, and environmental improvement.
My forester is providing excellent guidance. However, I am interested
in exploring ALL ideas that your community may have. If you are an avid
environmentalist I welcome your suggestions.
