So this is a plot of land my wife wants to remove virginia pines and make room for hardwoods to grow. This is like a lifelong care and maintenance project for us to enjoy. It's going to kind of be our playground to some extent. We want to make a cottage and some camping, and do all kinds of other things with this. There is a conservation easement and it is connected to a national forest. This means that we can't clearcut the place, but the conservation folks are okay with the pine removal. We just have to have documentation and letters and so forth. It's my understanding that virginia pine is a trash tree and we really can't get anything for it or sell it in any way. Maybe some of you guys are smart enough to be able to look over this picture with the rough boundaries and figure out how much pine is on this lot. We are going to keep all the loblollies and longleaf pines. There are very few in comparison. The vast majority of this green is virginia pine. I have a few questions. I have a stihl ms441, fs460, and a few smaller saws. My fil has a few tractors. What kind of an undertaking is this? How long should I expect this to take? what kind of progress can I make? How does one go about managing all the waste trees on a project like this? Do I just stack them up and burn them? As you can see, I don't even know where to begin or what questions to ask, I'm just trying to wrap my head around all of this and buy some more equipment if necessary. I haven't committed to high dollar chippers or anything, I'm just a dude who likes to be out doors and has some saws, and my wife has a plan for this land. Thanks for all input.
