Coming Over the Hill
We love pretty scenery and work hard to preserve your view and that of others for generations to come.
NO! The effects of clear cutting can be destructive. That is why we do not clear cut timber unless it is absolutely necessary. We prefer to shelterwood cut (select cut) the timber so that the forest will naturally regenerate on its own and may be cut again in 7-
To clean a tract of timber, we chip the brush and remnants that would otherwise be left behind.
