  • That's where I was when I was a kid, down by the creek where we lived in Texas! Had to watch out for Water Moccasins, Copperheads and such. There were even spiders that built their webs between trees! Would freak you out if you ran through one! Where was the spider!

  • Chris, don't you ever try to talk people out of takin' down so many trees? I was just successful in stopping a developer from clear cutting a property for a s..t load of houses. Some of the trees are 100-200 years old.

  • Chris, Is that water fit to drink if filtered? I don't know much but if I were you, I would find land anywhere to buy, clear, sell the timber, work the top soil for how ever much you can take and not hurt the ground that your on plus there are a lot of rock spots to make gravel out of and it others are buying and building then they always need equipment also. I think that you could sell for a bit less to move quick when done milking and get another and do same over again.... or did I just describe what your doing already?? I can see stuff getting paid for, and only the taxes will bite you if you still have after what two years? Money falling out of the trees and landing on dirt seems like everyone wants. Maybe those big apartment buildings will come down on the rent when enough move away out of city limits of what... twenty plus miles of trees and dirt,,, and lots of rock. People in new york pay more for a small crawl space to live month by month. Like almost as much as our townhouses here in alaska. We have a land shortage around the cities as well here.

  • I can understand the slope thing! I'm on a really steep slope and it's my first big clearing with the Volvo!! I was doing EXACTLY what you were doing with your last tree and I was on enough of a slope that as I was digging the downhill roots and between me leaning one way and the tree the other, I wasn't looking at the top of the stick and knocked the 3/8" line for the quick connect off. Darnit!!! LOL

My daughter spent her childhood building dams and catching crawdads ;-) There's an old cabin in our drive turn around and the folks were buried across the creek back in 1865. She spent hours & hours rummaging around digging up cut nails and whatnot... Fun place to grow up for sure!!! :-)
