Tree Hog!

7 Sep

I know all of you are familiar with the mower on a tractor called a Bush Hog, well, I call this implement a Tree Hog.

It is so powerful I have watched it cut trees up to 8 inches in diameter!

This machine travels along the ditches and canals in the area cleaning out the trees and underbrush growing there.

When the waterways get overgrown with trees and brush it impedes the water flow causing water to flood the fields. Clearing the vegetation from the ditches allows the water to drain freely. They also use this equipment to cut back the trees encroaching towards the roads in the rural areas. That is one powerful piece of equipment, I wish you could see it in action!
