Maybe 3 deer in 10 square miles here. ;) The deer love the lily beds in flower gardens, but not enough deer at my place to worry about. The coyotes yip here most every night, and of course the neighborhood dogs have to answer back. :D
Your lucky, we have around 25/sq mile.

Those are cool.  Don't recall ever seeing any.  Are they a northern thing...?  If deer love them that might be the reason I don't see them.  I will be on the look out though.  thanks   Banjo

Move'n on.

Things to take notice of in the wood pile. ;)

Here are a fir and a tamarack. Both taken from managed forest (ie the woodlot), but specifically trees were spaced some time ago.

Fir........... Notice two rings to the width of my index finger, still respectable growth.



tamarack ......... double the growth of the fir, if not a little more.



Definitely can grow 2 or 3 times the wood in the same time frame when you thin. Trees are much healthier to. Too bad tamarack wasn't 'the' money tree. :D I only planted them for firewood, they are dandy firewood to. But, I wouldn't want them too big, I hate splitting them. The old Collins just wants to bounce. Fir in comparison isn't even work to split. :D
Move'n on.
