Wish us luck...preserving undergrowth.
We live in so. new england and live on wooded acreage....or what was once dense wood...so dense you couldn't see neighboring homes or buildings. Alas no more, thank you deer.
So on Monday we are going to install a rectangle of deer fencing in the woods...maybe 100' x 400'....in the hopes that some underbrush might survive once again, if there is enough natural undergrowth to spawn more. I mean it has gotten really scary how little there is in our woods any more.
When I was growing up, you couldn't walk the woods unless you had a path to follow....now you can walk anywhere. There are areas where I never knew what the terrain was like as you couldn't see into the woods that far...now, no problem.
Several years ago, we were in a state forest in PA where they put up a circle of tall page fencing in the woods to keep the deer out and the density of the area was unbelievable!
So we'll give it a try.
Anyone else tried such a thing?
