 Brokenarrows new place

I am following in AV8R's foot steps. I am holding my breath right now. A piece of land just came on the market this week in a remote area. This is it folks! What I have been looking for to build my next house on! It is 35 min.
from my cabin and 160 acres (and tractor etc). Its only 40 min. to a very nice sized country town(city) that has great employment. It is 9 minute"s off a 4 lane hiqhway that leads to that town Great highway driving since this is way out in no whereville. Its on a dead end road. NO other houses except a farm (1/2 mile away). This dead end was put in because that farmer used to have solo's there at the end of the dead end road. He had run ELECTRIC down the 1/2 mile road. All other land around what I want to buy is farm land owned. This is 25 acres of woods on a dead end road with the closest neighbor 1/2 mile away!!!!!
I am in love! I am crossing my fingers that NO one bid on it today, if not, I will own it! She will get what she is asking for it tomarrow. I have been pulling my hair out the last two days since I found this land because I could not get away to get up there and put in a offer. (I google earthed it, it looks perfect)
Wish me luck!

You've been talking about moving north for a long time. In fact, I thought you had moved north. Good luck with the purchase.
Dave

Thanks all
Short Magnum
I already built a house on the 160 acres "Up North" (hee hee). What is happening is that I can't stand the road noise!!! Although I am about 450 foot off the road I need to be about 14000' away from the highway. for me to be happy.

I will post this question in the right forum also but thought I would put it here also.
Looks Like I will be getting it, (fingers crossed) I offered the full price and there are no other offers as of Sat. Soooo,,, My new property has many ridges on it. Ridge meaning about a 20' or so rise in ground level as so you have to 'dig in" to get up when walking. One spot has a drop off on ALL four sides and is like a flat area at the top.
We are having a walk out basement. Here is my question: I need to mark all the trees I want to save in about an acre area out behind the house. This is ALL grown up brush and saplings mixed in with full mature pine and maple. I want to eliminate ALL brush and saplings as to make my yard like the preverbial "PARK" like setting. I will leave a few nice large trees but I want ALL OTHER vegitation tilled under, cut off and shredded. I will eliminate all the trees that are large that I want to save for fire wood but I need to hire someone that can come in wiht a piece of equipment that can shred and pulverize and till up all the rest of an acre area. BIG job I know but it needs to be done. What do you suggest?

Broken; I don't want to rain on your parade, but I've saw tree thinning done a couple times that did'nt work out too well. Folks who are supposed to know say that after a timber stand becomes too thick the trees grow too tall and spindly competing for sunlight to stand on their own after thinning. I hope it works out for you, but I can show you a couple thinning jobs where the first windstorm took a lot of trees down. Thinning is good but maybe on a gradual basis over a few years. Best of luck. Frank.

I agree with hardwood, you have to look at the crowns and see which trees are fat enough to look good on their own. If you only remove small undergrowth trees (20' or less) then you won't have that problem, but you won't get any grass growth either.

Another problem is that thinning out tends to stress out the remaning trees (which grew up in a sheltered environment) and a lot of them will get sick and die in a few years. So at the end you end up chopping them all down, end up planting new trees and loose a few years, while you could have planted your park right away. But it all depends on the existing growth.

I agree on road noise, too. It's a bummer. Glad you got a dead end road location.

Frank is right about the thinning. Our woods are adjacent to land owned by a timber company. They clear cut a few years ago and a lot of trees that are on the border have since blown over. The trees that grew up sheltered were too tall and spindly for the unsheltered wind load.

I thinned out for house about 7 - 8 years ago. Left the trees I wanted and not really any more. Some beautifull white oaks, some cherries. With each big wind (here hurricanes) went 3 of the 5 white oaks, and this past year lost another cherry. Still have 2 white oaks and about 5 cherry trees.

You might do well to hire a true professional to review the trees and make suggestions on which to remove and when and if there is any pruning needed to help save those left.

The least you can bother the roots of those left the better off you will be. Many trees will suffer from root damage and that might be one of the reasons the wind affects them so much or dry conditions.

As to road noise, here roads are popping so fast even the computer maps don't keep up. Too much change, too fast.
