What kind of trees to you grow there in Wisconsin? Do you stick with
native hardwoods, or have you converted to softwood plantations?
I was out thinning and pruning today. The weather here was about 55 degrees,
and I spent the whole day in a T-shirt working up a pretty good sweat.
Eat your heart out. :)
Anyway, I started wondering if I was making any money pruning. I've
heard that the only people who make money off of pruning are the mills,
since they don't pay a premium for pruned logs. I suppose I'll keep
doing it, since I'm a few years yet from harvesting any logs. Still,
I could be sitting on my rear writing stuff to usenet instead of catching
a record case of poison oak trying to improve my trees. :)
