I havent seen anything that states if you log your land you must plant new trees.  That seems to defeat the entire concept of clearing land.



@kingwooddiscgolf:
depends on reason you are clearing land. like i said, for a commercial logging contract, it will include replanting as part of harvesting. houston is not zoned for commercial logging and it would make no sense to replant the trees cut down for building a house.

people were asking why the timber could not be sold as a commodity. the logs were in no condition for that to happen and a logging company cannot legally do it.

can you cut some trees down and sell them to a log buyer, sure but it is not considered logging.

well, that one is easy. would you want to buy a home that was made with dead, rotten bug infested wood? healthy mature trees sell for more than trees that are not. there are estimators that will cone out and take sample of soil, measure maturity and health of trees to be sold. that determines their value. small dead, infested trees have practically no value. it is almost more to cut them down and process into pulp than what that pulp can be sold for.

@BooBear:   Take a walk around the disc course in Rivergrove park.  In particular number 10, 4, tee box on 6.
 
These holes have fresh cut dead timber due to drought.  The logs arent rotten or infested and are large mature trees.   The deadfall from the hurricane is still there and rotting.  Take a look at the fresh cut timber.  Take a look at the mulch and logs on number 10 and those trees were cut at the start of summer. 

The logs on 4 and 6 are recent cuts.  The tree on 6 by the tee box is enormous.
If you park on the road at the left curve and walk straight in you will hit number 6 fairway.  Look right and there is the tee box.
 
Take a look, estimate board feet and tell me this is crap wood for zero use.

@kingwooddiscgolf: i am not an estimator but what are we talking about, 30 or 40 trees? at the most. those will not, by any means pay for the take out and clean up of all yhe other trees. a lot of the trees cut to clear cut new neighborhoods were good mature trees. the point is that the trees cannot be sold as a commodity. they can be sold individually.
No studies have been conducted as to what the removal of those trees will do to surrounding environment. the cost of the study in itself would be prohibitive.. logging and harvesting timber is not as easy as just cutting down trees and selling the logs.

I think the number of trees cut and removed just in front of Kingwood Place on Kingwood drive was around 180.  There have been several cuttings in the Park and couldnt tell you the exact amount of trees.  I imagine there will be a few more rounds of cutting as there are still plenty of dead trees out there.
 
I think they took the easy ones first as the fairways give easy access.  The trunks are cut in lengths and moved to the sides of the fairways.
