Yeah that is like me landing in the Russian Olive Tree/Bush after avoiding all the other woods stuff on that hole. Russian Olive trees are a weed with big thorns the size of Javelin spikes that are unwanted by most unless you planted them only as a wind/soil barrier or or such for US Plains style farms.

You guys make it sound like "woods golf" is some sort of unicorn. The majority of courses west of the Mississippi feature the woods pretty prominently.

FTFY

The McBeth property looks nice. Appears to have been timbered at some point- going to take a lot of maintenance for the first few years to get the undergrowth down. Once the canopy is opened up like that most of the stuff that wants to grow will be undesirable.

Now would be a good time to plant nut and fruit trees, as most of those will not establish themselves inside a canopy... walnut even needs to be in clear cut area to grow hearty

Can confirm.

Around here it's all honeysuckle, blackberry briars, eastern red cedar, and locust that want to pop up first.

I love the eastern red cedar in the areas that I want to reforest as they're the first species to come in and re-establish the woods before the nicer hardwoods come back, but otherwise they're a pain in the butt.

I just hope he's earning enough to hire a grounds crew.

Before the arrival of European settlers, forest was the dominant land cover in the eastern United States, extending from New England to Florida and westward to the prairies of the Great Plains (Greeley 1925).
So Bogey and biscoe are correct, the Eastern U.S. is naturally forested. Even beyond North Carolina lol.

No poison ivy? Lucky you!

Also, for those who are plant nerds:

Quote:
The Appalachian-Blue Ridge forests . . . including the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians and the Blue Ridge Mountains. . . . covers an area of about 61,500 square miles (159,000 km2) in: northeast Alabama and Georgia, northwest South Carolina, eastern Tennessee, western North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and central West Virginia and Pennsylvania; and small extensions into Kentucky, New Jersey, and New York.

They are one of the world's richest temperate deciduous forests in terms of biodiversity; . . . The reasons for this are the long-term geologic stability of the region, its long ridges and valleys which serve both as barrier and corridors, and their general north-south alignment which allowed habitats to shift southward during ice ages. The mountains also contain a large variety of diverse landscapes, microclimates and soils all constituting microhabitats allowing many refugia areas and relict species to survive and thrive.[2]
Sounds ideal for disc golf courses . . .

Thank you for catching my faux pass Mr. Biscoe!
