Committing acts of herbicide

November 7th and 8th I was out helping out a friend on his acreage in his quest for firewood. It really was not that hard since he lives on 160 acres and a lot of it is treed. Some of it is heavily treed. We probably could have got more done if we were a little more cognizant of each others quirks. He is far more cautious than I am as I am more impatient and like to get stuff over and done. If I ever do this again I will have a better idea of what to expect and will come a bit better equipped.

We made it to Sunday afternoon and it started snowing. With all of the decaying leaves and underbrush it was slick enough. The snowfall was making it worse so we knocked off for the weekend. This is east of Drayton Valley, Alberta.

    1. I enjoyed it myself. I my younger days my father and I cut a lot of wood. I love a fireplace or a wood stove. My friend has a lot of poplar and spruce that we cut.
