Cool. So what do you do with the trees after you whack 'em?

Also - How are your men killing them - are they cutting them and spraying the stems with some herbicide?

Ever find any giant snappers in there?

What about alligators? (I have no idea where these wetlands are or how big they are)

Also, how deep are these places - are they all solid underneath or are there some of those places with muck on the bottom that seemingly have no end?

Also - Why not take lightweight chainsaws for cutting them down - is it more cost efficient to use machetes than say a smaller chainsaw to do the work? They must be fairly easy to slice through?

We let them rot in place

We make about one inch cut per inch caliper and squirt a few mils of herbicide in the "frill", ie hack and squirt.

Ever find any giant snappers in there?
Not giant ones

What about alligators? (I have no idea where these wetlands are or how big they are)
Rarely, they stick to the deeper water.

Also, how deep are these places - are they all solid underneath or are there some of those places with muck on the bottom that seemingly have no end?

Soft mucky bottoms,with hidden holes you fall up to your waist in, and then face plant !

Chopping tiny water weeds with machetes?

Doesn't that just make them smaller?

May 2009

We are attempting to control Brazilian Pepper Trees at the end of one of the runways.There was a bit of hurricane debris. Like many other species in the family Anacardiaceae, Brazilian pepper has aromatic sap that can cause skin reactions (similar to poison-ivy burns) in some sensitive people. The airport's escort guys who make around $20.00 hr said they wouldn't enter the thicket where we were working, on foot for 40.00 hr. It was only around 1acre and they have my utmost respect.

Last years results to the left and Moody Gardens golf course in the back ground.

Image


My mentee sticking with it. Last years herbicide application nor Ike's salt water inundation hasn't killed this pepper tree. The Galveston Causeway is in the far back ground.

Image

And of course, you all know it's for the birds. In this shot we have a fledgling yellow Crowned Night Heron, Nycticorax violaceus .

The browned out trees in the background are where me and my guys crawled around on our hands and knees with backpack sprayers applying herbicide to the trunks of the trees where it was to wet to drive the tractor. It really sucks.
