Curse or blessing, it's what you make it. Have you heard that before? This can be true if you have a transmission power line that goes through your property. You loose acreage on you property so you try to make it to your advantage. We use the area as a wildlife opening to plant cool and warm season crops for wildlife. Alabama Power has a program called "Wild Power" that helps off-set some of the cost for establishing these areas. It is a winning situation for both parties because they help with funding which helps the landowner and you help them by keeping the right-of-way accessible to the power company by plowing and bush hogging the right-of-way each year. This helps them by their not having to pay to keep the area open for access.
This plowed area has been planted in brown-top millet and chufa for wild turkeys.
