I see alot of areas planted with pines and oaks mixed and they look real thick. It does not seem like it takes very long either maybe around 7-12 years. I think I have my hunting partners talked into helping foot the bill next fall to buy enough trees to plant around 5 acres (1/2 of a ten acre plot which is scheduled for 5 acres of a fall food plot this year). But one of the 2 guys wants hickory planted in with the trees? Any comments pro or con? I have not talked to my forester about this yet, just wanted some insight.
