I am in the process of marking trees to cut this winter. Part of my quality control. I am undecided whether I should keep the black gum trees and honeysuckle. This area was at one time fenced in for cattle about 50 years ago. I am removing lots of red maple, while keeping poplar, hickory, black oak, ash, and a few white oak saplings. My goals are for timber quality and wildlife food. Thoughts?
