Yard Work Forester Style

We had a beautiful day to work in the yard.  There was lots of clean up to be done and it was a burn day.  We usually burn off the grass and cattail around our ponds every winter to enhance our view, improve dog training access, enhance wildlife habitat and reduce fire risk for the rest of the year. Left unchecked the cattail choke off the open water.  Now, while fire is a useful tool, I don’t recommend this for everyone.  It can be very tricky and you have to follow all the local rules before using it.  That being said, I really like my flame thrower!  Thank you Mary, of Sneaking Bliss for all the great pictures!  Just click on the pictures to enlarge.
