:131 Clearing Brush 2

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:131 EcoTip: I was surprised and pleased to see what appeared to be about a hundred goats clearing excess brush from a steep slope of Berkeley Hills the other day.

 

The goats are employed by EcoSystem Concepts of Dixon, California to clear brush for fire prevention. EcoSystem describes itself as being a “Vegetation Management Service for Rangelands, Grasslands and Pastures, both Private and Public”

Need your land cleared?

Four hundred goats can clear an acre a day, and they consider eating poison oak a special treat!
