Good question, long answer, based upon your goals. General answer. You'll need to complete a soil test, not sure how you arrived at the ph range, self test or local service & you'll need to tell the tester whatyou desire to…"
I just had some old logging roads that were in bad shape graded and repaired on a section of my property. To offset some of the cost I told the contractor I wouldDo the final seeding ect...

"I agree with Rebecca. this is a round-headed borer, the family Cerambycidae. The larva looks like a horseshoe nail as opposed to those of EAB (family Buprestidae)in the photo that Rebecca posted. Notice that the head of the EAB is about the same…"
The larva does not look like Emerald Ash Borer. It actually looks a little like a flatheaded appletree borer, which does feed on a variety of hardwood trees. EAB larvae, and other Agrilus, have a "nested bells" look to their body…"
You can cut in the winter and re-surface the stumps in the summer. You probably don't need 3' stumps, but that height would make them easier to find and provide a useful stick of firewood. The work I have done with…"
"I also would like to cut my beech during the winter when I have more time available and was wondering if I left 3-4 ft high stumps could I then come back in the spring and cut them closer to the ground and do a cut stump treatment. This would allow…"
