Grape vines suppress tree growth.

Besides. If you cut them and don't treat them they leaf out at ground level and make deer candy.

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.

Thorns are why I just girdle them and let them die and fall down around themselves.

If soft maple is bringing $1.99 , Hackberry might be too. :thinking:

This tool makes it a snap to figure basal area for the government programs that require removal of a certain amount of BA. It measures 5,10,20 and even 40 BAF (basal area factor) to figure BA per acre. I checked this spot and counted 17 trees wider than the 5 spot which is 85 BA. The plan calls for 23 BA average.

I know you can also use one of the coins (can't remember if it's penny, nickel, quarter) to factor basal area. My arms a quite a bit longer than the distance needed to use said coin, so I prefer this tool.
