Now is a great time to create new food plots for this coming planting season. Whether you’re in the big timber and need a dozer to take care of things or whether you have natural openings to deal with and need to remove other type of debris, where there’s a will there’s a way.
If you don’t have the budget for a dozer, one person and a chainsaw can actually do quite a lot. THIS SITE can help you choose the right chainsaw for the job. You don’t have to remove every tree out of a plot. Sometimes a manager may have a good producing mast crop or fruit tree they may want to leave, or in cases of very well-drained soils they may leave a tree or two to provide some shade. Most food plot forages do not require full-sun and a tree to provide shade can help to conserve topsoil moisture, which is the most important determinant for success.
