Yard Work

This patch of the northern Canadian wilderness is actually my back yard. I know, hard to believe! The big trees had killed most of my cedar hedge, and so I made the decision that since they couldn't play together nicely, they both had to go!
This only took a day for Bill (with the chainsaw) and me. It took another 4 days to drag all the branches off to a burn pit! I plan to burn them down into charcoal. I still have the trunks of these trees if anybody wants to saw them down into lumber!
The end result is the sudden creation of about 400 square yards of back yard where there was nothing but vegetation before! Tomorrow, I'll show how much yard I ended up with!
