Winter Woodland Maintenance

Winter chores are in full swing at my Bedford, New York farm. In fact, a lot of outdoor tasks are best done during this time of year.

My outdoor grounds crew has been very busy with woodland maintenance and clean up around the property - clearing dying or broken trees, knocking down weeds, brambles, and thorny barberry bushes, and picking up the many fallen branches. The brush is then collected, chipped and spread right back into the woods. Any desirable tree trunks are set aside and cut up for lumbering, and rotten or irregular trunks are reserved for the tub grinder - everything is always put to good use.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
