Second Thinning

This was the stand about to be thinned.  It had been thinned once and we had been using prescribed fire on this parcel for several years.

This is what it looked like after the thinning.  we hope to burn this parcel this summer to get all the benefits from the thin. 

The logger that thinned this stand is one of the best!  He takes pride in his work and you don't have to wonder if it is being done correctly.  Your property always looks better after a thin when  he leaves.

Here is a load being removed from the forest by the pullout truck.

This is a little forest in the making.

Trash Dumping

Back in late Spring we were informed by a friend that lives on this road where one tract of land we own is located.  He told us about the fresh dumping and where it was located.  My wife and I went to check on the property and saw several bags of garbage dumped on our property.  With this much garbage you know they will not have all there private information deleted so we proceeded to check it out.  In the garbage was their WIC receipt and their address was included on an envelope.  It was a young mom that lived outside the county and I am sure someone dumped it for her.  My wife and I picked all the garbage up and disposed of it.  We could have turned it over to authorities to handle the dumping but we chose to let it go.
Maybe they will do better in the future.
