Happenings This Past Week
Started out this week, on Monday, with a prescribed burn of four year old longleaf pines. This stand was burned two years ago. We got a real good burn, knocking back the hardwood seedlings and burned up lots of briers.
Then on Tuesday morning, Eli and his mom went by the logging operation and watched the logging equipment in action. He got to watch the skidder, loader and log truck in action.
After some time I went to a tract of 22 year old pines, about 130 acres of loblolly pines, that we did a prescribed burn on. We got a very good burn with only one jump that we got extinguished very quickly. Next week I will be back to painting boundary lines before the woods get too thick.
