As I point out in my DISCLAIMER the information is provided in good faith to assist farmers and other family forest owners with the management of their trees. Because every situation is different the information should not constitute the sole basis for making management decisions and I encourage you to seek advice from others or trial the information on a small scale if you are at all concerned about the risks: financial, personal or evironmental. This is especially important with respect to the various state and local government laws and regulations with regard to land management. For more information about local and state laws please contact your relevant local government and state agencies.
I have a separate page dedicated to multipurpose tree species: TREE SPECIES
