A fence made of waste wood (this wood is typically burned in
an effort to reduce wildfires).  It's a bit like making fence out
of bamboo, but in an area where these conifer poles are considered a
nuisance.  You can see the rock jacks (this particular property is one
giant rock) - but ignore those for this video (we hope to have a rock
jack video later).  Pretend these are normal fence posts.   This
particular fence is being made 8 feet tall to keep deer out and to
keep layers (egg laying breeds of chickens) in.   This is a BB for
part of the sand badge for woodland care in the PEP curriculum. You
start by installing two horizontal poles along the top and bottom on
the same side of your posts. Then you install four evenly spaced
vertical spacers on the outside of the fence rails. Once you have your
spacers up, you install one more horizontal pole across the middle on
the outside of your spacers, and then you can just drop in loose poles
to fill the rest of the fence up. Voila! Easy fence made reusing waste
wood.



The carbon is now in a fence instead of up in the air.  Cheap, quick and easy.

Building good things rather than being angry at bad guys.
