Should questions be put in the Q&A or in the chat box?

Q&A is preferred (I won't miss them there), but I'll try to pick up ones here as well.

Climate change is academic nonsense that has very little affect on forest regeneration. The reality is that an out of control deer herd is preventing survival of seedling regeneration.
Norman C. Pattison, CF
01:02:20
Also, out of control property taxes by socialistic bureaucrats has a negative impact on long term forest management.
Peter
01:03:24
Norman, have you seen success in your area for addressing the tax burden and destruction by deer?

Peter ..... What we need is (1) More doe harvest (2) The only entity that has the ability of "create" money is the Federal Government. We need to create and shuffle more money directly into cities, counties, townships, school districts as a direct substitute to property taxes. One never really ever "owns" a home or a property because if you do not pay the tax rent, the property is taken from you. Essentially, you are only paying tax rent .... particularly in the socialist world that we have evolved into.

Let's keep the questions and discussion on topic. Thanks.

The questions and discussion is on topic. Sarah ... you must be a socialist
Norman C. Pattison, CF

I you paid as much tax on forest land that I do, you would understand the affect that the out of control taxes has on timber harvest decisions.
Norman C. Pattison, CF
01:19:55
The property taxes are so high that long term timber growth and timber revenue returns are negative.

What is hack and squirt?

Every time I see a clearing, it is quickly filled by ferns. Any seedlings are eaten by deer. What do you do to fight this?
Martin B. Jones
01:24:44
What about costs of this system? Have you compared these with conventional mechanised systems?
SARAH JEAN WURZBACHER
01:24:44
David, hack and squirt is a technique for applying herbicide to a live tree by frilling the bark and directly injecting chemical into the wound. Unlike cut stump treatments, hack and squirt is applied to standing trees.

Alstor forwarders are low-impact and are used in small woodlots in the the UK and Europe

Horse loggers from what I have seen are few and far between, and they are not full time horse logging either.
Martin B. Jones
01:41:47
How are potential veteran trees considered in your "worst tree" analysis. Do you retain a % of veteran trees for wildlife and bidodiversity?
