The deer did the TSI out there for me.Are you tsi-ing the bean field ?
I don't know of anyone that uses honey locust. I've wondered the same thing as it looks like it would make some great looking items.Thats nice stuff ,,,,,,That stuff have any furniture quality type wood in it ,,any use gunstocks etc
I've found one hedge on the entire 160 acres.Have any osage orange ?
I've burned a lot of honey locust as firewood over the years. I've never seen any with thorns inside like that.I split some of that honey locust last year. Had thorns on the inside. Nasty stuff.
It does make some good firewood. Has a funky smell though, at least that one did.

I'm following a TSI plan through MDC. Some of the trees get dropped and some get a double girdle with herbicide.So are you gents following an MDC prescribed TSI program provided by a forester? Curious as I had one completed a few years back. I didn't sign up for cost share at that time but an interested now. My understory is littered with maples, so thick in places it's dark in the heat of summer.
Are you all felling/hinging those or just ringing? Are you just using a backpack sprayer?
They don't mark the trees, at least for my plan they didn't. It's up to me to follow the guidelines in place.Just curious. Do they mark all the trees they want killed or do you? How does the process work?
Torson was used. I used tordon the last round I did ~ 10 years ago and all those walnuts survived I cut around.On your second picture the forked tree on the other side of the stump and the forked tree to the left I would eliminate also if your after timber production.
Did you use tordon or pathway on the stump by the young walnuts? If you did let us know if they live or die.
