Patrick, the way I interpret what they are saying and what I would do, is to stack the pines making a natural windbreak. More or less build a fence/windbreak with the pines. Depending on the amount of trees, you can actually position the pines to provide natural cover around future foodplots. As far as beding cover, any “junk” trees you wish to drop, I would suggest cutting them 2′-4′ up from the ground. If possible, don’t cut the thru, leave a “hinge” and let the tree fall to the ground. More or less, you create deadfalls and natural windbreaks while still letting the sunlight in to enhance natural growth, providing both natural food sources and bedding cover. Keep us informed as to your progress! Mike
