Clearing up the Debris

For the last few weeks I've been clearing up after the contractors who thinned the larch.  When they had finished we were left with about 6 acres of this:

and this:

etc etc!

I must have cleared about 2 acres so far - its hard work using these:

To achieve this:

The contractors left quite a bit of larch lying around which will come in handy, once I've sawn it into planks or used them for posts:

While they were working they "pointed" lots of the fencing posts that they'd cut and I'm left with piles of the offcuts:

This is just a small pile, in all I must have hundreds or even thousands of these wedge shaped bits of larch.

While I was there today I walked over to look at the stream which is flowing a bit quicker than usual because of the recent rain:

The felling has revealed some old field boundaries in the woods which we knew were there but previously were not as obvious:
