    Appears to be a clear cut area growing back in.

    Do you have the coordinates?

    The effects of raster layering multiple images to create a single image/display of a manipulated composite aerial image.

    Or a fresh-growth over a prior cleared field or patch of land.

    It could be a hunting area that is growing back in, are any hunting clubs or leases in the area? there might be deer stands around the edges of cleared area.

    My thought was new growth on old farm land. I see a lot of that in Loudoun County. Here's a compare with the 1905 topo map. I expected to see a house there. Nada...

    Looks like it was cleared and the new growth is coming back in.
    Sometimes if there's a parcel of trees acreage it will harvested of the standing wood.

    It's just clear-cut land.

    Go to Google Earth, and search coordinates 38.94186, -76.19821
    Then, in the menu bar, click the little clock with the left-facing arrow (to go back in time to view prior Google Earth images).
    A scroll bar will appear at the upper left of the map. Scroll forward to Sept 2005 ("9/2005") and you can clearly see a clear-cut field of the same basic dimensions as shown in your map.
    And especially so if you fast-forward to September 2007.

    Now, what it might have been before that? Or, why this particular field is clear-cut is anybody's guess.
    But probably just for logging? I don't see any evidence of structures of any kind.

    What is interesting is the upper left area, Not a clear cut or food plot area, but rock or some mining has disturbed area, the coloration is greyish like a mineral deposit or rock.
