Fire is a big part of a Pine forrest which keeps the underbrush managable.

Yeah western WA can be ridiculously thick but it's all levels of the forest. We have some major underbrush/very full underbrush. Because of our climate, rain over longer period of time, we can have a pretty lush environment. East of the Cascades it's a different story. I just thought that was interesting.

Looking at work

Last two days we have looked at 6 pond jobs

here's a couple from today.

Sir.... you have a problem




I think the pipe has a rust problem. 36" pipe



The emergency overflow is 4: 60" concrete pipes. This is where you don't want to be standing during a flood!



The pond to be dredged, I'm on shore while they probe the pond to determine the amount of sediment to be removed. See the little boat.






The next pond is for a big wheel. He owns over 40 bojangles restaurants ( you Yankees don't know about them lol) Pretty much all of them in eastern NC. then his property backs up to a huge track that Jerry Stackhouse owns (plays for the NBA)
Told us to take care of his pond and make it look good. 10-4 !

Alittle swampy looking!

Most of it's maintenance so we don't need one. So I guess you could say 80% of the time, NO

Wow, if I had that much work, I'd be thinking about a Wilco floating excavator PDQ.
