That field of switch is only about 1.5 acres so I will just make a firebreak and work around the 5 white oaks that are tubed. From where I stood taking those pictures is almost where the break is, so those trees are only 10 yards from that line. Using the back burning method will keep the flame low and easy to manage. That's my plan anyway :) Those Oaks are the really the long term goal to screen my back plots from the road, create diversity, add more food and create another edge. I've got several "layers" of things that will take various amounts of years to mature that aren't shown in these pics. The EW/Sorghum, and switch are part of the shorter term goals.
