When did the clear cut the foliage between Judd and the Plaster Creek plant?

Caught Q328 slugging out up and out of Grand Rapids as best as it could. CSXT 15 pulling for all its worth with 2 dead ES40DCs and about 60 cars in tow. They're entering the siding at Elmdale for Q329 now, who hasn't hit Lake Odessa yet.

CSX #7824, and if it had a 2nd engine, could be CSX #5265 since these 2 engines were Q329's power today.
