Cutting & Clearing
Sumac Trees & Brush Cut Down ....
The work of clearing ground in the Wild Rose Farm pasture areas continues. Look behind the sheep & you can see where the trees have been cut. These were some of the largest Sumac trees that we've ever seen.
The triangle of ground in the Back 40 has been cleared, next the stumps will be pulled & the ground will be leveled out and prepared for seeding.
Back 40 Clearing Off Of Fence Line
Next project? See the clump of trees & brush on the right? It's just the leading edge of a tangle of dead & dying trees being smothered in bittersweet, poison ivy, grape vines & a particularly nasty upright multiflora rose growing up against a large tree trunk.
