    That doesn't look bad. Wrap a chain around the trees and pull them out. You could bh several of those and treat the roots

    Here are a few more shots:-field-pic-jpg-maine-pictures-346-stetson-032a These small poplars I have to get ride of to make the most of the land for planting.

    The field that is over grown mostly follows the power line, as you can see, I have some open areas, but not really good enough for planting.

    Go on YouTube, go to the Video section and type in land clearing. Best wishes. Another revalent thought? Please remember hat you can use a tractor for minor land clearing, but a Tractor isn't a piece of Heavy Equipment. BTW, I have a toothbar on my FEL.

    I am now thinking about a tooth bar, I originally did not think I needed it, but hearing the responses, it looks like it might be necessary.

    After seeing more pics I'd get some quotes on guys that run dozers. Make sure they have a root rake or know what they are doing. It'll be done and you won't run the chance of tearing up your tractor, won't have to buy anything else and you can enjoy your place. I get the blowing off steam but there will be plenty of work left.

    If I need a dozer it will be a while as my funds have dried up for the time being. I may just take a crack at it with what I have, which is not much.

    I have been using a Ratchet Rake and disc. I have pushed Mesquite trees over that 4-6" in diameter. Some go and some dont, but I have cleared alot with it. Should be fairly in order from where I started.-imag0657-jpg-imag0658-jpg-imag0659-jpg-imag0660-jpg-imag0661-jpg-imag0662-jpg-imag0663-jpg-imag0721-jpg-imag0722-jpg-imag0723-jpg-imag0724-jpg-imag0725-jpg-imag0726-jpg-imag0727-jpg-imag0728-jpg-imag0729-jpg-imag0742-jpg-imag0743-jpg-imag0744-jpg-imag0745-jpg

    wow, impressive work you did, that is what I needed. I see that you have a root rake on your tractor. What size is your tractor? It looks like 2 wheel drive. Thanks for sending those pics. I will look them over a few times.
