Silvopasture class in Albany NY

I picked up a copy of The Stockman Grass Farmer newspaper and saw a flyer for two upcoming classes they are going to have September 25th-27th in Albany NY. The first is Grazier's Multi Species Grazing School the 25th and 26th, and Grazier's Silvopasture School on the 27th. I tried to post the flyer, but apparently that is beyond my capabilities.

"It's has a lot of overgrown underbrush, Widow makers, standing dead,(some of which is rotted) and piles of old cut trees from who knows how long ago. We alao have a lot of stinging nettle, honey suckle everywhere."

"Joe- What do you mean by a 'mess'?   When was the last time it was cut?  Did the forester recommend giving it 5 years for a harvest or to start converting to a silvopasture? Jeff"

Starting a silvopasture in the woods

We have about 20+ acres of woods we can use as a silvopasture, but we're not sure how to start it. The woods are a mess, and we're not sure if we should "clear cut" and start over, or?? We have a lot of Northern White Pines which I know are good for lumber, along with some Birch, Oak, Maple and not sure. I had a forester look, and recommended giving it 5 years, but we don't know if we can look at the over grown mess for 5 years. Anyone else start off with woods rather than pasture?

"All goes well, we'll be closing on a place in VT in a few weeks. The other place in NY fell through. The new place has 30 acres of woods."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on (mrjamespollard@aol.com) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
