Understanding Vegetation Podcast Series: Trees

Understanding Vegetation Podcast Series: Trees

Land & Legacy  / 

Posted on January 18, 2021

Show Notes

On today's podcast we wrap up the last part of the Understanding Vegetation Podcast Series. We dive super deep into all things Trees. Often times, trees are certainly overvalued by many hunters. They consider them to be cover or perhaps all mast producers when in reality, many trees are dying or growing in severely stifling conditions.

We break down the differences between hard mast and soft mast trees. From there we discuss how God designed the Red Oak trees to be on a two-year cycle production as opposed to white oaks being on a one-year production cycle. From here, we then discuss observing tree health. This is an easily learned skill, but one that makes managing the timber for wildlife a necessity. Let's just say, we spend a lot of time on how to create a landscape that thins the bad trees and promotes a robust understory of plant vegetation.

You will want to listen closely to this podcast if you have any amount of timber on your property. It's time to start actively managing your timber! #ForLoveoftheLand
