Repurposing Debris Left by Tropical Storm Isaias

Debris leftover from Tropical Storm Isaias is being put to good use at the farm.

Over the last week, my outdoor grounds crew has cleaned up most of the fallen trees, branches, and other debris left by the storm, but what really happens to it all? A lot of it is gathered and chipped and blown directly back into the woodland. The rest of the organic material, such as stumps, logs, and brush, is all collected and brought to a corner of the farm where it is either repurposed as milled lumber, firewood, or made into mulch or compost - none of the material goes to waste.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
