Pt. 2 Hinge-Cutting vs. Clear-Cutting with Matt Ross of QDMA

Time to recap the topic! Last week we discussed the difference and similarities between hinge cutting and clear-cutting. Both types of techniques do benefit wildlife, but the question we have set out to answer is do they provide the same value? This last podcast caused come hype on social media, so we are here to revisit the topic with some outside advice from Matt Ross of the QDMA.

In this podcast, Matt discusses in full length from his background as a forester, hunter, and QDM practitioner the differences between clear-cutting and hinge-cutting, especially in northern climates. Matt shares what to expect and how wildlife will be effected after each technique. hinge-cutting is a highly debated practice, but has it’s place! It is should be used as a fine-toothed comb or detailed paintbrush for property architecture, not a broad stroke that encompasses acres.

We hope that this follow-up podcast further explains our thoughts revolving around these timber and wildlife management practices. Thanks for listening! Share with those who need to hear this message. Enjoy.Learn.Share! #ForLoveoftheLand
