Will I be wasting my time planting 1/2 acre in norway spruce/white pine mix? I've read an article where guy planted 7 acres in spruce, had dozens of deer coming out at night. I was to go with alfalfa mixed with shrubs just outside the spruce trees then to open clover. Naturally lead out to open. On such a small scale is this a waste of time? Also the trees in this area are mainly 1 to 2 inch diameter saplings very close together shading each other. Big timber is never this close, its flat and next to farmland. Not sure if the farmer let this part grow up or if it was timbered. Heavy deer trail on the outskirts of this next to a field. Maybe no need for sources cover, not sure.
