Larry brought up his brush rake to push the brush from our orchard into burn piles. You can’t see it from here but the entire orchard is full of brush from pruning.

Larry on the tractor, Ken & Daniel with the brush rake.

Detail of the brush rake. This one is sturdy and flexible enough to float over most of the rocks.

In use, pushing brush into a pile for burning.

Starting the burn as soon as the pile is large enough but not too large.

Once it’s going Larry uses the rake and tractor to pile more brush on top.

We got the east side of the orchard cleared in about an hour and a half. Then spent the rest of the day picking up the firewood . I got all teh electric fences out and ready to string up so we are very close to turnout of the pregnant ewes.
