I've since asked around. The current Timber manager of the lease owner indicated that they (Finch) would never have gotten away with it if he had been supervising the job.

My own property has been logged twice. The first time the loggers lopped off the upper half of trees and left it lying where it fell and took the good part. Logging roads were deeply rutted. I think they took advantage of my parents who were old. As a deer hunter they ruined the area for 15 years. I was constantly climbing under, over, and around treetops.

When I contracted out I made sure it didn't happen again. The result was a neat forest with drivable logging roads. It doesn't even look like it was cut.
I haven't asked the wildlife how they felt since they have yet to pay their share of the taxes.
