My MC is a rancher in the midwest in the late 1940s (no specific state has been determined). I'm trying to figure out what problems he might encountering in clearing a pasture.
There was a blog about cutting down cedar trees to clear a pasture. (http://thepioneerwoman.com/blog/2012/03/why-we-chop-down-cedar-trees/)
I can't find the answer, but where exactly are cedar trees found growing naturally? What season (spring, winter) do they pollinate? Are they really that damaging for ranches?
Googled - 'season cedar trees', 'location cedar trees', 'cedar trees plague ranches' (how I found above link, only one though)
Ask.com - 'what's a cedar tree's season?'
Again, all I've been encountering were complimentary florist articles talking about how great they are. I actually need to know the opposite.
