  1. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    Last year I planted 400 red pine seedlings in late April. A lot of them looked to be dead in the late fall, even though we had a lot of rain over summer 2019. I am in the Baldwin area, with sandy soil. I am trying to screen my property from the road, and wondering if you guys have other...
  2. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    I have a gas line that runs straight through the middle of my property. The soil is incredibly sandy (dune sand essentially), but still grows native species. Not easy to grow anything else. Do you think it would be beneficial for me to mow once or twice a year to provide a top mulch layer to...

  6. Whitetail Deer Habitat
    Sooo we have a sandy natural gas pipeline that runs the length of our ~80 acres, and the last few years I have been trying to plant tall grasses to screen to give the deer comfort, and allow me to walk in to stand more discretely. I have spoken with the energy company, and you can't plant...
