Today I dragged this white pine about 350ft to the back of my yard. What a work saver!
For flooding? I never knew you had any issues with that. Good luck. Sounds like a lot of work for sure. Perfect for young bodies to earn some spending cash.Starting yesterday, the RTV has been relieved of firewood processing duties for a week as it moved on to sandbag duty.
I had 1,000 new sandbags laying around so it's time to set them up for usage. I had 20-tons of sand delivered yesterday and started loading up the bags. By myself, I can do about 30 bags per hour, maybe more now that I have a routine established. I'll do some by myself but will hire a couple teenagers to do the bulk of the work. My old body doesn't want to do more than 100 per day.
Yes, for flooding. I have a creek behind the houses that runs 540' through the back yards. The 25 acres adjoining us immediately downstream was logged a couple years ago. All the logs they didn't want as well as the tops are laying in the low ground. When we get a lot of rain, those logs are acting as a dam and things back up pretty badly on our property. I've been ripping the logs out as much as possible but since it's muddy back there I can't get there very often.For flooding? I never knew you had any issues with that. Good luck.

Sorry but I have to finish my sandbags first. I dumped the 20-ton of sand in the middle of one of the driveways. I need to get it out before it freezes.Hey Zoom, do you hire out? I have about 700lbs of pawpaw seeds to bag!
This Pic reminds me of my Youth in Vietnam, Sand Bags Every Where around all buildings except they were Green But when the Rockets and Mortar's were in coming you didn't care what color they were!!
