Battle of Locust Hill begins tomorrow
The timber cutters who were here last fall had to leave behind some black locust trees. The pulp mill doesn't like black locust, plus it's too crooked and gnarled to load systematically on a log truck.
I have one hill that looks particularly bad (above) and that's what I'm going to tackle tomorrow. My plan is to cut the trees into proper firewood length, roll them down the hill and then split them.
It will take several days to clean up the hill. If I were feeling extra energetic I would say "that's no hill for a stepper," but I won't say it.
