Has anyone ever peeled poplar?

Anything that doesn't fit in the other boards.

Biggest logging company I inspect cuts about 4-5 acres a day. Hard to keep up peeling the poplar there.

the few timber deeds I've seen specified the size tree that could be cut.....like 18" diameter, 15 inches above the ground. Something along that line and would include a fine or penalty for trees that were cut and too small. Still looks like a bomb went off when they finish.


Here, we call that high grading and its not something you want to do. Here, we cull the poor trees like culling cattle leaving the best and when things are ready we peel the hide off the place and start over. No need to leave junk.

Don't know that they're leaving junk so much Joe as their just leaving immature trees that will be cut a few years down the road.
