    Foal
    Wish I could, the only other choice is our hay... or the house lol. I guess I was exaggerating a little when I said hundreds haha. This place we picked had quite a few but I can't even begin to explain what the rest of the property looks like, it's like living in a jungle. There are some big ones out there for sure.... I think if they were 36" across we would have given up by now hahaha!

    Foal
    I think someone else may have cleared some of the area we chose already because it was pretty bare. It's directly behind the barn... I'll have to remember to get some pictures tomorrow... I'm at work right now

    I would be guessing that a bunch of 6" trees are a result of that area being logged off within the more recent past (not sure where you are from/how fast trees grow) but a stab in the dark maybe 10-20 years for hardwoods

    Depending on how the rest of the property is you might actually want to take some of the other trees too. Talk to a forester to see what will be best for the trees/property. If they take out some of the older larger trees then the young small ones will have a chance to take that taller/older tees place

    There isn't really anywhere else on the property where we can put this. We've looked for a flatter spot but no luck besides the pasture that we use for hay (NOT going to cut that any smaller than it already is). The rest of the property has a creek running though it and MANY more trees. I feel like this was the worst property choice for horse people now but it really didn't seem that bad when we purchased it
    It is what you make it. :P photos please.
