I live in Columbia county. I am truly blessed with the amount of public hunting land within a 25 mile radius of my house. However since coming to this area in 2008 it seems like 2 hunting grounds are getting logged every year. 2008 til now is 14 years. Which is a lot of time, but it takes longer than 14 years for a tree to grow back. I am not against logging, but at the rate they are cutting there will not be any trees left. I have hundreds of stand trees but I have lost many stands to logging and worse yet when all the trees on the high ground are gone in an area I get a lot more pressure/company in the wetlands.
Many of the larger properties have been logged multiple times in multiple areas. There was a spot I saw on mud lake this year that had been logged maybe 8 or 9 years ago and then they came in this year and cut down all the new cherry trees and the remaining poplar trees. Any one else seeing this in their area or think it is an issue?
