In 2005 Huricane Rita rearanged my yard. I have 5.2 acers of the best dirt money can buy. 18 to 24 inches of jet black top soil, and with good dirt come nice trees. When I bought my place it had one tree over 9ft across and 8 or 9 over 6ft across. I lost the 9 footer early in the morning the year Californa had the earthquake that collapsed all the overpasses. In 2005 I lost 40+ oak trees from 6 inches to 4ft. Well due to being financialy challenged, most of the trees still are on the ground. Well I have one of the best neighbors on the planet. This guy owns 2300 acers of farm land and has all the toys I guy could want. Well he called me the other day to tell me he bought a Bobcat. Cool I said. I went over to see it and he said, "Will that clean up your yard". I said it would if it had a claw bucket on it. Well he calls me the next day to say he bought a claw bucket and wanted to know If I could come down and help him put it on. I did and then I asked him what you want to do now. He said " take it home and be carefull.
Well I drove it home at a cool 1.5 mph about 1/4 mile to my home.
And after 6 or 7 hours I cleard about an acer of down trees and here are the pictures. He also loaned me an 026 Stiel Chainsaw to cut the trees, . That is one haurse of a chainsaw.
The first pic shows what my front yard looked like before the storm.
The second pic shows after the storm
The third pic Bobcat and burning pile in background.
The forth pic, is after 6 or 7 hours of work.
The last is what Darrel missed out on because he live too far away.
And sorry Darel I tried to give them away, but no one what come and get them. All Water Oaks, Pin Oaks.
