Sustaining a Forest- January 2015
I just wanted to thank you for the excellent job of logging on our McGrath, MN forty with your Brabant Belgian horses.
This forty acres was a mature oak forest when we purchased it from a family friend in 1970. Over the years we have been offered many thousands of dollars by area logging companies for the timber. After seeing the destruction of some adjoining lands logged off by commercial loggers, our family said no.
You cut only the very mature oak trees and allowed trees to grow that need another twenty years to mature. Then our children can do this again, rather than waiting a hundred years for the whole forest to mature again.
What really impressed us is the way you opened up areas in the forest to allow sunlight in to rejuvenate the forest floor with new growth. We look forward to seeing much more wildlife activity.
Thank goodness for guys like you who love horses and do a marvelous job of sustaining a forest.
Low impact in the woods and VERY cool to watch!
Who would respect my land and leave the area better than it was found?
I have known Jason Julian and his family for over six years. His appreciation of the land and traditional farming methods piqued my interest as I have the same values. As a new land owner in Wisconsin with over 100 acres of woodlands and more than 100 acres of pasture for grazing, immediately wanted to learn more about this approach to agriculture.
I have hired Jason to warp baleage for the last three years and have received excellent results. He is prompt, hardworking and geves great attention to detail. this prompted me to inquire abou the services provied through Leagcy Horse Logging, a conversation i was hesitant to approach intitially. read more
