A highly appropriate comment, as evidenced by the photo below.
Very much a case of “Now you see it, now you don’t”.
“Clear cut” is exactly that – nonselective felling of trees.
Harvest the timber, leave all the debris to rot away.
Unless of course you get a deluge and all the detritus finds its way to the nearest waterway where it forms a temporary dam which – after collapsing – destroys a village.
That why Orcs like it….
