hemlock hinge cuts
I am looking for useful info on creating bedding in a hemlock area. I understand the thermal cover aspect of these trees and how it will be gone by doing this with them, . I have considered this spot carefully based on it's location and it is where I want to create bedding and security cover, just not sure it is possible and can't find any info on it with a quick google search. Has anyone done it? The area has lots of visibility now, prob 80 yards to 100 with ease, just want to make reasonably sure this will work, obviously deer eat hemlock but I don't think the trees survive hinging so they won't put up much browse once cut, the sunlight is what I am counting on to offset that and spur new growth. I plan to harvest some and drop the rest, there are a few white oaks I plan to leave, and a few yellow birch that will be hinged too.
I couldn't find any info online of anyone who has done this, just figured I would ask here
Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...
