I started a job this week where about 20-30 acres of cedar (juniper) was sheared and dozed. Trees range from 6 inches to 20 inches. It's really more than my mulcher can handle but the big machines were 6 months out and were unwilling to do a site visit. I decided against the chipper for the initial recycling because the terrain is rough and I'd still need to pull some of these trees out of the piles and cut stumps off. I went out for a day and pulled apart some of the piles and have my helper cut off the big root balls. Got rained out and had too much wind today but hoping to go back and start mulching tomorrow if weather cooperates. Some of the root balls were big and full of dirt, sand and rock so I didn't want to try and mulch them. Will probably take 335 out for some of trees that are pushed down into the ravine. Really starting to think I need to buy a bigger machine either a mulcher or small horizontal to feed with the 335. I turn down/refer a lot of this type of work just because of the size of the piles/trees. Burning around here has been unpredictable with the winds and the drought plus there is just so much volatile fuel on the ground. Owner is hoping to get some grass to grow eventually so anything I do to reduce brush/slash and make an eventual burn safer, he says he will be appreciative.
