Thinning Pines

Well, this weekend, Brenda and I spent time cleaning up and thinning a small stand of pine trees that line one of our woods roads.

This stand was left by the forest mulcher.  The machine is just too big, so we thinned it by hand.  The thinning was with loopers and chain saw.  We then chipped the stems with our PTO driven wood chipper on the back of our Kubota.  Sorry no pictures of the wood chipper.  We also used the billy goat brush mower to help cleanup the underbrush.

I think the results look pretty nice!
