TOPIC: Logging kill ginseng?

Re:Logging kill ginseng? 4 years 2 months ago #24223

Here in Mississippi when hardwoods are clear cut the property is 99% of the time planted back in pines. We have mostly pine plantations in the county I live in where thirty years ago it was big hardwood timber. The ginseng hardly ever survives the clear cutting and when it does it's always in a SMZ (stream side management zone). That's a small strip of timber left to prevent erosion around streams with running water. I think the main reason the ginseng doesn't survive is because after the timber is cleared the property is sprayed with a chemical to kill the hardwood regrowth before it is replanted with the pines. Mississippi's summers are usually extremely hot and dry and plants in a clearing wouldn't last through the month of June. Even though older plants might survive for a while, seedlings would burn up their first year.
