..general property clean up..
« on: June 20, 2020, 08:02:39 AM »
.
have a somewhat short line of trees, perhaps a dozen of 'em, out in the far back Pasture that have "junk" growing around their trunk bottoms

using a Machete, Loppers, Recip Saw we've put 1 day in cleaning out the vines and other crap that's growing there - have about 4 more trees to go and will get to those today

the trees sure look better after being cleaned up - we'll load all the trash and dump curbside

the City has a service that, once a month, comes by curbside on all properties and collects all cuttings, branches and limbs (from storms or from resident's cuttings) - they run all thru a BIG wood chipper and into the back of a truck - so - no "burn pile" is required by us

very appreciative that the City does that

this is the type of junk that'll be gone by manana - nasty work but nice results - the life sucking vines that overtake a tree can be seen in the pic.....



can see in this pic a few of the trees that have been cleared (on the left of the treeline) then the ones that still need clearing (on the right of the line)

Tango
I know that game.
Doing that on my land currently. 
Being the property sat unattended for 20 plus yrs its over grown badly.
These 4 oaks were completely engulfed by under brush and briars.

I got a long way to go to get it where I want it. All these

Looked like this

Being I dont live on it yet its my therapy to work on clean up so when I do get here in a few yrs it will be redy to go.

Fantastic view!!!!

I was just think the same thing!  :th_thicon_idea:

Tango, it's a lot of work, but it's worth it in the long run. I'm doing the same thing around my place. Just a little at a time.

When I stand back and look, and it looks so much cleaner and better, I know it's worth all the hard work.
