Here is a job i've been working on for the last week . Clearing and burning a little over 3 acres. Then grading with the dozer and skid steer. this area was suppose to be planted in pines, but was missed during the planting and not realized until now. So i'm knocking all the waste trees down and turning it into more farm land... I mean hunting land lol

Piling it up

Man! If we saw that fire from the station we'd have jumped in the trucks and hauled a$$ to that fire but upon arrival we'd come to find out its just some burning a little brush.

So i guess there is no way to use those trees for anything so that is why they just get burned?

I always try to give the local Firehouse a heads up before I burn a big pile.

Those black and white shots would make a great back ground for advertisements!

There's something about burning trees that is so awesome. When I used to clear orchards, I'd stack the piles as high as a 312 would reach. Some sketchy times when you'd get a handful that would roll off the top of the stack right after you tracked away from the pile. Stack 'em high and tight, that's the only way to go.

What we found to work really well to go along with the blower is a propane torch, one that you can just set the output, no trigger. Just set it in the pile on full bore, blow with air, and watch it go. Works incredibly well.

I love burning brush piles. I've been doing a lot of that here lately with all the rain we've had. That and leaves too. Just blow the leaves out to the ditch and pour on some gas and let er go!

yeah the clearing and burning was fun, but pushing the ashes into a hole to bury sucks.

Look at my dozer! :cry::cry:
