We are starting to address our excess load of wood debris around the home place. We have always been pretty good at keeping thing corralled and in a specific ‘dumping’ area, but that was a short term solution. 

Time to move forward with getting rid of the excess fuel in and around the contonement area. 

The area we burned was small, but we lit a back fire to create a small dead zone. In this manner, we now have a perimiter in case the fire some how wanted to jump/roll out of it’s boundary. 

Blackened back burned ring around the wood helps keep the fire contained.

Even thought this was a small area, it took most of the day to burn since a lot of the wood was wet. 

Next few burns will be quite involved since they are large piles.
