Didnt matter much at first, I thought this opportunity was great finally some land to do what I want, well it's a money pit. I just got out of the hospital for something that happened from the land, so here I am trying to think of something I can do to make some money. With all the trees that the property has I figure I can get it logged, but my problem is there's nobody I can find to do it, so here I am looking for anybody who can help me get the placed select cut. I called a few places, whos numbers where nearly impossible to find, and to no avail, I'm thinking because this area of Texas is naturally barren. But I know with all the 150-200 year old post oaks that theres money growing from that forest floor, which is why I'm so desprit to get it select cut, and get out.

I only want to finish off the old trees to open up the canopy and start to turn the land back to a healthy forest. As for the property value IT IS AT ROCK BOTTOM. I can't imagine a property in worse condition, its natural aspects are destroyed by neglect, and the buildings have been torn up by vandals and littered across at least 3 acres of the property. Though I can understand that if someone says they wanna strip the bulk of the old growth trees off their land that this puts a bad image up, these trees are going to die soon, might as well plan the destruction and reap what I can. Selling it isnt gonna happen at least not for many years, sometimes thats just how it is, sad as it may be.
