The loggers were just starting the job when I took these videos this fall. The harvest is designed to release existing understory seedlings and saplings so they can become the next forest while leaving mature reserve trees. The harvest type is called an overstory removal. The loggers did a great job. More landowners are asking me to set up more aggressive timber sales like this overstory removal harvest because they can see the benefits for the forest 50 years down the road.
