Ethics of shaping guerilla patches

Thought an ethics thread could have some purpose here. Mainly the ethics of shaping a guerilla patch to be more suitable to the needs of cover and cropping our favorite herb.

I wouldn't kill old tree's but there are a few medium trees that block light in the most inaccessible part of the patch. Also when it comes to planting and/or changing the local native brush that provides concealment and cover for the cash crop?

Where are the lines?

Obviously some people take it too far and have no limits. I just have little easy access to patches suitable for both concealment and performance. It takes a little time and effort to have something workable.

NO poison. organic amendments only. I would have no trouble cutting down a medium sized tree, trees grow back fast anyways. And compared to the foresters or even hunters who go in and ride with their big trucks and make the roads muddy and feed the deer (who dont have any natural enemies except humans) grain they shouldn't be eating... its nothing.

As for invasive species. Just stay away from the most aggresive ones. Nettles and comfrey are my fav dynamic acumulators and they also hide plants pretty well.

Don't fuck with anywhere I aint supposed to be these days so felling a tree or 2 or a dozen aint nothing when I can clear fields if I want.
If you're on "public land" there's not much you can do outside of bringing in heavy equipment n shit that can't n won't be over grown in a few years, but that said, I'd tend to just look for the terrain I need n change little as possible so it's a little lazy n a little environmentally conscious. lol

Thinking poison here. One hit with a hatchet and a few squirts of poison. It's what's left of a tree. It survived a larger tree coming down on it. It's too big to cut down covertly. Nobody will really notice it dying from poison. It's it's foliage and one other tree that I don't have a vivid memory of.

The spot has some years before it's all nice and secure. I live in the city and it's about impossible to sneak to spots. Roads are a major weakness to travel.

Wait it out if I have to. Just usually messing around with ideas at the least.

I try and look for obscure sites that little needs to be disturbed other than digging and augmenting holes. The less disruption the better, even from a security standpoint.

I had a small site I grew at for a few years, was perfect regarding sun exposure from dawn to dusk. A lot of times I’ll work at night for security reasons and didn’t realize a couple of trees had grown and their canopy was blocking the sun for a good part of the day. Still got a crop but not what it should have been.

I like to spread things around and it just seems the less conspicuous the better.

I live in a forest, and it's mine, so I do my own forest management. Any trees I harvest I burn in my wood stove to heat the house in winter.

Here's what I do. I look for a spot where there is only one or two trees blocking the sun. When I find it, I hammer a single copper nail in the foot of the tree. Next year, it's dead and I cut it down for firewood. That location now becomes a grow spot surrounded by tall trees.

But next year, I'll experiment with planting some weed in an open area in the shape of a peace sign. lol

I've had great luck hiding my weed by planting it to blend in or do late starts or topping in a way so the plants stay below the natural plant cover like these cookies.

patches that you can spot from the air seem much less safe to me in the days of cheap drones and google earth.



this is some ECSD next to a stream that blends in well even with a dozen bamboo stakes.
smaller plant in foreground.


this clump of small trees and bushes gave me a great spot to conceal a big plant.


individuals like this blend in well along the edges of fields and they do fine with partial sunlight too IME.


last year I planted this suspected male at the edge of the road on the other side of the ditch maybe 20 -30 feet from the road
and thousands of people drove by and walked past this plant without noticing it and it was waiting for me in October frozen pretty hard but still dank.

There are more spots in these area's but getting to and from them feeling unseen is the risk. Well, being unseen. People are hateful in this neck of the woods. They all want to be God's wrath or some crap like that.

That second pic took a minute to find the ganja.

So how does copper kill a tree? The nails are sorta pricey but it's better than spray and can be removed.

Red face

copper nail slowly chemically deteriorates to copper sulfide/sulphate ??? (something, lol) which is a pretty potent poison. just a nail or two & a little patience will kill a big tree.
