An additional wrinkle that may affect a rural homeowner's plans to keep an 
abandoned field open through infrequent mowing is that certain shrub and tree 
species respond very aggressively to cutting, and in a single season can put up 
enough new woody growth to overwhelm the available machinery, forcing you to 
resort to chainsaws and treat stumps with herbicides. If you've already got 
species like black locust or autumn olive present, you could be setting 
yourself up for a real struggle.
