We’re spending our day today cleaning up some trees that fell over last winter & this past summer on our land. We gave away the last of our wood pile to some friends a couple of weeks ago so we need to replenish our supply for this winter. I spent part of yesterday moving all of my plants away from & off of the wood stove & getting the wood holders ready.
We recently were able to buy 3 1/2 more acres of timber from our former neighbor who sold their property. Outside of the timber around our property is a lot of agricultural land; mostly corn & bean fields. We’re always worried someone will buy the land that meets our property line and clear out the trees. That is our biggest fear. When the opportunity to purchase the extra few acres arose we jumped at the chance.
