Our land was cleared about eight years ago and almost all trees taken off(except along the creeks where we still have BIG trees) We are planning on mainly pasture/fields and have had a dozer in taking down all the scrubby trees growing back. A lot of these are growing from the stumps and we have been told will never get really big BUT it would seem to us at least better to have some smaller trees than nothing. Will these offshoots grow big enough to provide some shade? We want to have the rest cleared(except for a section that will remain wooded along the property line) so we can start making it into pasture. We also need some sort of fast(ish) growing tree to put in on part of the property that will be the woodlot,any ideas? What would be a good sized woodlot to provide enough firewood? By the way,land is in Western North Carolina and is rolling but quite accessible. Thanks oz and wife.
