Dead Tree

Blueberry's picture

No I have not gone off the deep end posting a picture of a dead tree. The dead tree in located on a 200+ acre track that was clear cut several months ago. All the dead trees are still standing. Watched the crew trimming under the power lines and guess what they were not taking down dead trees. So I asked why? The crew would remove wood from the strike zone and the rest of the tree is left standing! LEAVE IT FOR NATURE started in Florida about 5 years ago. Big help to the woodpecker population and other birds. Cost ZERO dollars.

Leaving the occasional brush pile there too will give small animals a place to nest as well.

If the picture was better you would see a brush pile about 50 yards behind the tree. When they replant the brush piles are left alone. Takes about 5 years for them to rotten down.
