Default Clear Cut/Cut Over Question

I know Weyerhaeuser will spray and nuke everything after they clear cut a tract but does anyone know how long they wait to spray? They just finished up at one of my stands and Iím wondering if it would be worth it to just broadcast a couple bags of soybeans and clay peas over a few acres. Wouldnít plant till it warms up a bit though. Wonder if thereís anyone with Weyerhaeuser I can call that may be able to provide an approximate time frame when they spray after clearing. Thanks!

It’s usually sprayed mid to late summer.

And then nothing grows for the next year at which they’ll replant it.

Might be a stupid question but if the plants survived to make pods/beans and then they sprayed, the beans would still be there for deer to consume right?

I know thatís a whole lotta ďifísĒ but it might work Iíd assume. Iíll look and see how clean the area is and if I think itís worth it.

Spraying would usually be August to October. If I suspected they were going to spray, I would probably skip any planting and focus on getting some gravity feeders for the forage-less desert that was about to come.

It's a shame that timber companies have gotten away from burning. This is so much more beneficial to wildlife.

If they were in it for the wildlife it would be a completely different ball game. Wildlife is a by-product when talking about timber operations.

I don’t think it’s such a bad thing. It gets rid of a lot of the undesirable stuff and the briars and honeysuckle will come back strong. Normally the browse comes back to following spring/summer

What ever it is it is good stuff. It normally takes 2-3 years for our plots to grow after they spray.

The old plot thatís in there is actually kinda small, I thought about getting a few roles of visqueen and covering the plot if I knew when they would spray.
