This winter a fellow that owns some land that joins mine cut his timber hard (pertty much clear cut)...
this clearing is to the east of my property and in the area where I have a lot of wild sim growing.
I think this is going to be very good for me... my woods there is old growth hardwoods and the shade is heavy and my seng has been growing slow there..
but now all of a sudden there is lots of morning sun coming into this area where I have a bunch of wild sim growing. Ideal !!
Here is what it looks like right at the edge of my property looking over to his (that blue paint on that tree is my property line).
I planted most of my red berries today in that band where the extra morning sun is getting in.
All of the wild sim I had planted in that area had pretty much doubled in size this year, and started putting on more berries than ever before.
I have seen what happens to seng in the wild when it grows in the edge of a clearing (just right), where it is getting an extra dose of morning sun.
I had my doubts about ever having much big seng in my wild sim, but I think this is going to be a game changer for me.
