Excerpt from Sylva, Vol. 2 of 2: Or a Discourse of Forest Trees

Roots will pay for the grubbing, and yield you some feet of the best timber; whereas being let stand, nothing would have grown: If the ground be a shallow soil, forbear filling the holes quite, but tset some running-wood in the loosened earth, and the ends of the old roots being cut, will furnish the sides of the holes speedily In thin copp'ces 'tis profitable to lay some boughs a - thwart, which will be rooted to advantage against next fall All great rotten stubs among our under-woods should be extirpated, as making way for seedlings, andsyoung roots to spring and run The cutting, slanting, smooth, and close, is of great importance; and frequent felling gives way and air to the subnascent seedlings, and the rest will make lusty shoots.
