I am clearing land for a pasture and have two questions. 1. Small saplings "thumb sized" do they need to be pulled up roots and all or could they just be cut off flush with the ground? I will disc the area after clearing, but wondered if the stumps left behind would damage hoofs, frogs, etc. 2. I can get a good deal on Kentucky 31 Fescue seed, is this a good grass for pasture? Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
