This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in woodland care.

In some forested areas, there is an overabundance of small trees.  In some cases they are already dead and waiting to fuel a forest fire.  Let's make use of them by turning them into building materials.  


They need to be at least 8' long once cut so choose your junk trees carefully.    

Cut them down, remove all limbs and stack off the ground to dry.  They don't need to be peeled.

To get certified for this BB, post the following pics.

Here's my stack and the falls I acquired them from.

From first to third skid is 7ft to judge size. I left them long to meet requirement, but my need is more like a 5ft junkpole fence. Im going to make a junk hay ring around a fruit tree to keep cows and deer out of them. So these 10 8ft plus and 2 6ft poles may get me 22 poles total depending on bends.

I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
