Hortiscope: Local reader: Do horses thwart tree development?

Email News Alerts

Q: I was reading an article that you wrote in the Park Rapids Enterprise about horses chewing on trees and the damage they do to the land. I have 75 acres of land that is about 70 percent wooded. I rent it out during the spring, summer and fall to a cattle rancher who has about 15 head on it.


What am I sacrificing as far as tree redevelopment and the land as a whole? I'm not sure if this is a question you can answer. If it isn't, do you know who I could ask?
