Pictures of before and after the pipeline easement clearing crew came through today on my place. Eleven pieces of equipment cleared 2800' by 90' in an hour and a half. It's amazing what big equipment can do to mature trees in about 5 seconds. The perspective isn't exactly the same in the pics, notice the first cedar tree towards the right in both.

I see now the power line is the best indicator of the level of destruction....

There will be a lot for deer to eat in that right of way once it recovers with some rain.

It's a new 24" high pressure natural gas pipeline. Trenching crew is next, then the pipeline laying crew.

That happened to me last week. I went out and got in my stand before light, and as it started to get light, I asked myself where in the heck did the big oak tree go, then I look right and realize a group of cedar trees were gone. Then about 5min later I start to see all the stakes in the ground. So much for deer hunting this season.

Hahahahaha...lmao.

I was hunting our East Tx place during the week when 2 dozers drove down the pipeline I was hunting and cleared all the trees then the grater came right in behind to smooth the road.

I've been in the stand in Winters when a crop duster came in low and hot. Shook the dang stand on first pass the dusted it on the second pass.

Nothing like big equipment. Looks like a grinder on the front of the loader? I sure could use one of them sometime!
