Clean up: west fence line and maple grove

Today turned out to be too cold and damp to do the mowing between the trees I cleared last year, that I hoped to do today. I thought I might be able to at least use my reciprocating saw to cut some of the smaller stumps of trees I took down last year to ground … Continue reading Clean up: west fence line and maple grove

Unexpected Clean Up: pruning apple tree losses

Yesterday, I heard some odd meowing noises out my window, so I went to check it out.

I got a few hours work on the spruce grove this morning/afternoon, and plan to head out again, but here's progress so far! I've started at the north west corner, where the stone cross is. This is more or less what we see out of our living room window.  I went farther into the underbrush … Continue reading Clean up: spruce grove perimeter, start
