Just curious, but why would you want to do that?
Years ago, people were paid to plant wind fences of cedars. Now there are programs to pay you to get rid of them. They are an invasive species, and can cover hundreds, if not thousands of acres in a relatively short time, choking out other trees and native grasses. Their only true enemies are man and fire. drive towards enid from tulsa on 412 and you can see vast tracts of (what used to be) prairie covered by cedars.

That is it in a nutshell.


'Cause we don't let the prairie burn any more.

Prairie fire is a wonderful thing, for the prairie. Not so much for the structures people build on the prairie. So people have prevailed, and the prairie has suffered.
