Mulching Trees

We are working on a new field.

It was full of clover, weeds and trees. We could go around big trees, but we wanted to shred or mulch everything else. Ed rented a skid steer with a mulching attachment that would mow through the little clumps of Senna bean trees. If he left any stumps they would pop equipment tires so he needed to grind them down level with the ground.

Spring Cleanup

There are lots of pecan trees that lost limbs during the hard months of the 2023 drought. Losing branches and twigs is a normal occurrence through the year but we had a lot more to clean up this year. It is part of our usual spring routine to push the dead wood into piles and burn it.

These two tractors are our spring cleanup helpers. They help control the fire; the red tractor is used to push the limbs into tighter piles as they burn and the green tractor is used to mow the grass to prevent it from burning.

The next pile to burn is hiding behind the trees on the right!
