Don't get me wrong guys, I cut a good number of trees myself. but I also planted 250 trees and shrubs this past year & expect I'll plant and additional 300+ this coming spring. I'm working on a investment/wildlife tree area you see. I also expect I'll cut a couple dozen trees down this next summer. Ash trees, killed by the Emerald Ash Borer or American Elm tress that have died. I always cut dead timber first. I don't own a wood burner, but father & brother in laws do, as does a good friend at work. So I help them out, and get in a great workout to. So how many of you guys do plantings in your woodlots to improve the mix of trees or type of trees in your woodlots? I'd also be interested in what types of trees you plant and find best for burning if different? I'm planning on planting a mix of: hybrid Poplars, hybrid Walnut, Black Cherry, hybrid Oaks this coming spring. Perhaps even some hybrid Chestnut trees if I can find some that are pretty close to the original native American Chestnut that the Chestnut blight killed a century ago.
