I absolutely agree with your

I absolutely agree with your position. Management is the key to a healthy forest tract. My last two cuts have been to remove excess fuel with a limited number of dead trees left behind for habitat, and to create enough opening in the mast to promote new growth. Both cuts were performed with benefit of a consulting forester and comply with my land management plan which is approved and on file with the department of forestry. Those with no knowledge of forestry do more harm in their efforts to enlighten the public on what they believe is best for the environment. I've been practicing conservation of my forest track for two decades. I take pride in my role as steward and hope those that follow me will do the same. I encourage those who want to know more about local practices to simply visit www.wvforestry.com. The folks at WVDF have been very helpful to me in providing guidance when I've asked.
