10/9/2010 We tried pushing down dead aspens with the tractor. It didn’t work very well, so we stopped. We’ll just have to wait for them to fall down.
11/20/2010 Carlos came to help do a clearing project, so we decided to work on the east facing slope of the prairie, starting at the bottom. This is what we were clearing – thick brush, with dead, fallen aspens on the ground.

11/20/2010 We cut and piled brush and fallen trees, and then moved the piles down the hill to our waste brush pile in the valley. We got one small swath cleared – it takes a long time.
