Tree Harvesting at Barger Farm
Tree harvesting or thinning started late last week at Barger farm. The tree thinning is par of the North Carolina forestry management program:
- These plots are in the NC Forestry Management plan and are thinned every 14-16 years. Followed by another thinning about 6-7 years after.
- Thinning helps the best specimens grow into larger quality trees by increasing sunlight and air flow to remaining trees.
- The trees in this program are no different than any other “crop”, they will all be harvested at some point.
