I guess my question is, why? Great browse, delicious berries.
Pastures haven't been mowed on this place in over 2-3 years; along with SEVERE over grazing; this place is in need of some major TLC.
If the berry thickets and cedars are not controlled now before the property is allowed to REST without cattle for a couple of years while I do pasture renovations then the problems of cedar & berry thickets will only get MUCH worse and MUCH more expensive to resolve.
Truth is that I will most likely never kill out all the blackberry; were talking about thickets that are 5x+ the size of a full size truck and more than 6' tall and have to be removed prior to other operations.
