I've got a forester scheduled to visit my 40 this weekend. I would like to have the property logged to open up the canopy and thicken things up, it is way too open right now. The majority of the big trees that I have are oaks, both red and white. I don't have a count yet on how many oaks I have, but 75 is just a guess. Should I allow any oaks to be cut as long as they are not crowding each other? It would seem to me that I should leave the big oaks and cut most everything else. But if I don't allow any oaks to be cut, there may not be enough timber value from the other species for any logging company to even bother with.
