Planting 100 Oak Trees!

Hickman Family plants 100 Red Oak Trees on Family Property

Hickman Family

The Hickman family worked together to plank 100 oak trees on some personal family property that was recently harvested.   When we manage, we typically allow for natural regeneration and don’t do any planting.  However, we wanted to give it an extra push to grow some quality timber on this property.    With all these kids, we are thinking about college, or more likely, their kids’ college funds!   

This property was clear-cut in the 70s by previous owners.  It grew back with a ton of birch and other less desirable species.  Hickman Lumber harvested the property in 2018.  The goal is to turn this into an uneven-aged forest.   We’ll keep you updated over the years.    Follow #hickmanacres on Instagram!
