Thinned woodlands

netwizJune 29, 2006

I recently moved to a property that has several acres of woods. The previous owners thinned out about an acre and now we have a huge amount of PI and sassafras tree saplings growing. We want the trees to fill the space back in but need to get rid of the PI in the mean time. Will putting a thick layer of straw over the area help? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
