11/20/2012 This year I worked a bit on clearing out some of the brush at the bottom of the prairie slope. The birches that I girdled a few years ago are dying, so by clearing the brush, I’m giving the prairie and savanna plants under it a lot more light. Here’s the before – with mostly sumac and honeysuckle under the trees.
