A successful burn today, thanks in large part to Ian and Brian. With the snow cover shrinking, today may well have been the last weekend for burning, so I was hopeful we could make a little progress.
We dropped some smaller, dead and dry hemlocks and started a fire between the still snowbound brush piles. From there we attacked the piles with chain saws and brute strength. Eventually the fire was hot enough so that anything we threw on it was consumed. Still plenty left to burn, but today was a victory!
