    Clever video! Im currently clearing much our 51 acres but I've employed a company to use a forestry mulcher for much of the work!

    it wouldn't have been that kind of a mess back then. everyone seems to think this land was an empty wild mess when Europeans landed here. It wasn't! my ancestors maintained foot trails and paths. our societies thrived in harmony with the earth.

    I come from a long line of farmers on both sides, unfortunately my Parents moved from the hills and hollars of West Virginia to Ohio after WWII to follow work. My Dad was a bricklayer. Farming never left their blood as we had a few acres and raised cattle, three head at the most, chickens and a nice garden with plenty of canning going on in the fall. I too feel a connection with the past, in fact I long for it. I've watched your videos probably twice each and have had my wife and kids watch them too. They are a treat and brief glimpse into the past. Please keep them coming!

    This is the second video I have watched of yours and I decided to subscribe.  I love the history you include.

    I am going to do this at some point. Unfortunately I need to get a real job first so I can afford the land. Anyway, I'm thinking about inoculating stumps with mushrooms. I would have to cover the stumps with something though because the fungus doesn't like light (although mushrooms will have vitamin d in them if exposed to ultra violet light). It would be harder on pines since there are not very many edible mushrooms that grow on them. Maybe if I took out the sap in the spring before chopping off the tops. I imagine a lot of stuff there would need to be fully decomposed, inoculating a stump would speed up that process because the fungi will spread thru the root system.

    Tannerite and a good high-velocity firearm will take care of your stumpy issues. :)

    I would suggest another way.
    Start removing underbush. It will take time, so big trees will grow a little bit – this will be your profit.
    Then cut the trees after you finished with bush. Cut trees on winter time!
    Then remove stumps and plow same or next year.
    Otherwise bushes will take all the space you cleared.

    P.S. Chip the bush then use chips for heating your house.

    You make me laugh, and learn. I can think of no higher complement to give you.

  • farmhandscompanion 1 year ago

    Well hello there Danny!
    Thanks for the good word.
    I don't have a chipper or GMO seedcorn(a chippers a bit too expensive for the value I'd get back from it)and I've already got lots of rotten trees here and there.As for my permaculture food forest I've had a bumper crop year of muscadines, hickory nuts, and squirrels.But be sure and write me back in 10 yrs with an update on your food forest, hugelkultur, and branch chippin!I look forward to hearing from you, and thanks for watchin!
    Yours
    Pa Mac

    Instead of burning off the trees and branches, you should chip them and use them as mulch, or bury them in a hugelkultur and let them break down to build the soil. Also, if you're going to be clearing that many trees, please PLEASE don't use the land to grow gmo corn…Consider growing a permaculture food forest instead.
