So my father in law who normally has a bunch of hairbrained ideas on how to get rich quick and or modify things ( like our lawnmower that has headers on it for one) found a man to not only clear our land of trees, but pay us for the wood and send a bunch of men out for a few days to do it. I knew I liked him for a reason We've been here a year and a half and the biggest project that we were facing was how to clear about 5 acres of Red and White Oak and Pine trees to make room for my horse and perhaps a llama. We had gotten quotes upward of $1300.00 an acre including debris removal. . . not only does the man buying the wood have extremely neat "helpers" but he's got a friend whos loaning us a chipper and he's going to ask his crew if anyone wants to make 50.00 for a day of chipping with our family. They even stacked the smaller pieces for us in piles near the branches so that we can just go ahead and put them up by the road for sale. I just looked out the window and saw that as far as dropped trees goes I already have MORE than enough room for my horse to go! I can't wait for them to be done... I'll have a MEADOW! I'm thinking I may fence even more in and get a few calves.... I'm going to take pictures in a few !
