Your property has been entered into the state land use program whereby a plan is required to be maintained in conjunction with your forester, the land owner and the state. For this your forester makes recommendation of harvesting to stay current use with the state requirements.
The primary purpose behind land use is to keep the land under agricultural use and open vs being developed. For this the land owner gets a tax break for doing so. Your forest was pristine prior to the cutting.
What the land owner expects after the harvesting and what they actually get are two different results. It has been our experience to see a disaster at least 98% of the time.
Loggers don't do a bad job they do their job in accordance to the state regulations. It's the state requirements which are far from the land owners expectations. Property owners after all are only Stewarts of the land while in their hands. Therefore the goal should be to continually making the land more valued year after year. The goal is to have a sustainable forest so the process can be repeated multiple times. All loggers are in this industry to make money not loose it. Therefore more often than not the best of the best is taken and the rest is left behind to mend itself over time. How much time, it depends, but we have seen the process taking anywhere from 10-15 years. And depending on how heavily it was logged or the degree of the harvesting the value for that land decreases dramatically.
Here at Beech Hill Vegetation we work with your forester and go beyond the minimum requirements restoring your forest to something which is more palatable.
In all cases we clean up after the harvesting. Leaving the forest through the woods. An appearance which is pleasing to the eye not an assault.

Multiflora rose is an exotic invasive perennial shrub native to China, Japan, and Korea. It was introduced into the United States in the 1860s used in the horticultural industry as readily available rose root stock for rose breeding programs and as an ornamental garden plant. Not native once being introduced into gardens it has proliferated anywhere where it can get direct sunlight like edges of pastures, open space in a wood lot, along driveways etc. It grows very fast and left unchecked it can only be taken down wit a forestry mulcher.
The same area after the Multiflora has been mowed. Now able to maintain the area easily with a brush hog.
