Roads are graded off and landing areas are cleaned up for landowner use when the harvest is complete. The company also has a bulldozer to do clean-up when necessary. Many times those same roadways and landing areas will be used again in 8-10 years when another harvest is done.
Landowners often use the trails for hiking and 4-wheeler trails. It often increases the landowner's ability to utilize his/her property for recreational purposes.
