Hey guys so I am setting up a plan with my forester to get 2 clear cuts somewhere on the property around 1-2 acres each. My goal is to get the hard woods back to oak which we have an crazy amount of maple. So the two clear cuts and thinning of the rest is the plan but I am not sure where to put the clear cuts. I supplied a picture of my lower part of my property where we are going to get this done. Just north of the pictures is marsh. A little back ground info on the property. This is our first year with a 1/2 acre perennial plot and a 1/4 acre of clover in the other. The woods are so open most deer only move through it at night and all move east to west , west to east. Property is facing north. Bedding is very scarce on both neighbors properties and for my 1/2 acre plot it is being hammered because there is not a lot of natural browse. Green is food plots right now. Red is Black locust that is going to be taken out and open a good chunk of property. orange is the property line. Basically where would you guys recommend placing these clear cuts? I can make any shape anywhere but I just want to do it right.
