Cutting buckthorn

Over the years, buckthorn has invaded the edges of the roadway to the cabin. Some of the boles of the shrubs have gotten thick enough, and their branches thick enough, that they are seriously crowding out the cedars that were originally planted to line the roadway (although perhaps a little too close to each other).

I decided to clear out some of these buckthorn -- located in the break between two cedars. You can see them slowly disappearing from view. It feels good, and that the wood will eventually be used for the SNRE campfire event makes for an even better feeling.
