Hey guys, what are some of your experiences in woods that have good ginseng in them and they get logged. Sometimes it total clearcuts, other times its select logging. Does the plant come back, how long, any special things happen.. I don't know, I have some observations, I'm just interested in what some of y'all have seen. Thanks
Crazy logging in the past 10 years. Entire forests high-graded. Many places I have seen will require 100+ years before even firewood can be harvested again. Most landowners have no idea how trees grow. Maybe they think squirrels will plant acorns and a forest of red oaks will magically appear.
The only benefit of irresponsible logging is that it makes the remaining ginseng impossible to find.
Thanks for all the input. One spot I looked forward to going to this year was clear cut. Bye Bye ginseng for many years. I did find some in some berry bushes in a logging spot that was hit approx 7 years ago.
my experience w old logged woods is that they go dorment till condition goes right. then they pop out w either one prong or two prong....but the root will be old and potent. that's just my experience in the hollors
