We bought a house with forested acreage that had been clearcut twenty years ago and it makes me sad. Many trees that have grown in those twenty years aren’t healthy and are slow to grow. Some are still so young their tops snap off in any windstorm. And I think of those photos at MOHAI of the giants that have been felled. It is tragic.

More than likely, there are things you can do to improve your forest health. Have you reached out to your local county extension or DNR Small Forest Landowner Office? There are a ton of excellent resources and many are free or offer cost-share or even dividend opportunities. I encourage you to reach out!
