Woodland Maintenance Around the Farm

Outdoor winter chores are in full swing at my Bedford, New York farm.

During the last several weeks, my outdoor grounds crew has been very busy with woodland maintenance and cleanup - clearing dying or broken trees, knocking down weeds, brambles and thorny barberry bushes, and pruning all our fruit producers. The brush is then collected, chipped and spread right back into the woods. Any desirable tree trunks are cut up for lumbering, and rotten or irregular trunks are reserved for the tub grinder - everything is always put to good use.
