When to plant

The electric Company just came in and trimmed the small powerline on my property. After trimming they brought this machine in that ground up everything in sight. It looks really good. I don't want to spend much time there and we don't hunt there but I was thinking to get a couple bags of the Throw and Grow type seed and seed that area. I know its not the best seed but it will be fine for what I want. My question is how soon can I do it and I see people talking about frost seeding what exactly is that. Thanks for any info

The electric company just did mine but they just cut the trees down and left them. Some of the trees are now blocking my Atv trails

DO NOT use any "throw & grow". They are mostly ryegrass which has little deer value and is very hard to get ride of. I would braodcast a mixture of red & white clover with some chicory. You can do it now up until April. Sooner the better to let rain & snow put it in contact with ground. Seed 8 to 10 lbs per acre of the mixture with a hand spinner type seeder.

Call them and express your displeasure with the way they left the property. They very well may return and rectify the situation. A nieghbor called them after a sloppy job, they returned, cleaned it up and even planted what he asked them too. A private contractor usually does this line cutting. Davey Tree was the contractor in his case.
