Not to be confusing with Flamestead thread, I will give mine a slightly different title, so both can be enjoyed. yesterday, brother and I spent several hours in the woods with our consultant. We surveyed and marked about 5 acres. Picking out leaners, culls, and all types of maples. We also took note of all the young beech and poplar that needs killed. double trees are all going out too. Some like to leave one, but they can be unstable, potentially harming good veneer, and going to waste we have several living ash, of marketable size. We are culling all of the smaller ones too.
