I have a fair amount of brush I plan to clear off my property this year. Initially, I'll probably just pile it in an appropriate corner of the lot and let the critters use it as habitat. But if, as I expect, the pile gets too big I have the good fortune of a mulch producer not too far away that'll take all this type waste you can give them. I have a grapple on order so loading mass quantities of this into the bed of the pickup for hauling is the easy part. Once I get to the dump site getting the debris out of the bed of the truck is where the problem arises.
I have some ideas ranging from going at it with a mulch fork by hand to putting a tarp down in the bed of the truck and rigging it so I can pull on the end behind the cab and pull the brush out with it. Sounds good in theory but I have a feeling in practice it won't be quite that simple. Anyone have any suggestions for an easy way to get a load of brush (honeysuckle, wild roses, raspberries, etc) out of the bed of a pickup?
