Gates of Hell!

 

One of the first things we did when we acquired the property in 2001 was daylighting oaks. We girdled hundreds of trees that were overtopping the open-grown bur oaks.

 

Following this, we embarked on removing roughly 35 acres of buckthorn. As this picture demonstrates, buckthorn grew so dense that the ground was bare underneath. There were no grasses, flowers or sedges.
