When your hinge cut tree's eventually die, will you go back and saw them up or leave them as is?

Sod, I might cut some of them up and leave some for structure, Jeff Sturgis from whitetail habitat solutions came to my property this past March and made a detailed plan for me on where to put my travel corridors water holes stands and where to add another food plot, he told me about hinge cutting and the benefits of steering deer where you want them to go, adding bedding areas and more food for the deer. The biggest advantage it has he told me is letting more sunlight in so sun can hit forest floor and new growth can take place, I have cams over my newly hinged corridors and deer movement is amazing.

Did you barber chair those trees on purpose? Tank looks good and falling trees is a good way to influence deer movement, but a couple of those trees look like they about killed someone on their way down.

Are the deer using these hinge cut areas ? Looks like a good way to thicken stuff up for the deer!
