I have 120ac in Allegany Co. I have fenced Red and White Oak for about 7 years now and the results are amazing. Yes the fencing costs are high but the results in my opinion are worth every penny. I have tried other methods as have been mentioned, but nothing works like fencing. I would love to host a woods walk some day. Thanks for your class subject. I would love to attend.

Hi Danny:

Thanks for sharing your experiences. If you're a member of the NYFOA, the local chapter would probably be happy to work with you to coordinate a woods walk. Hopefully you can attend on the 20th and describe your experiences when we look at the new fence we've established.
