Default Timber Company Spraying

Has anyone had success planting anything in plots that have been sprayed from the timber co. Is there anything I can do such as disc it more to turn ground over or add fertilizer to it to help it grow winter a fall food plot? Think I read/heard people having some success with clovers. Any info is appreciated, thanks!

You would really need to know what chemical they sprayed to know how soon you can plant behind it.

Makes sense. I'll talk to our club president to see if he has a # for Weyerhaeuser to see what they sprayed.

Plowing & planting will work, & also just plowing will encourage new growth especially briars which is #1 in deer browse.

Still waiting on word as to what chemical they used. I read that legumes (clovers, peas) should grow there. There is a little native sprouting up so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Some of the chemicals they use will kill off all browse deer love to eat. We have same thing. Had a Warden biologist come check ours, had some areas only 1 species of browse left. He told me optimum is 30-40 different species of browse. Other areas, 5-8 species, 1 area has about 20. They hit us hard and timber company answer, oh well, if you want to let it go we will find someone else! This is on app 6500 acres by Toledo Bend.
