Good points freedom. Folks in rural areas should think about what options they have for blocking, reducing, or somehow controlling access to their neighborhoods. There are 5 roads that come into the little valley hamlet I live in. Three are dirt roads, two of which come from a more rural area than my neighborhood. All five can be easily blocked off by dropping trees. If electing to drop trees across the roads, a key decision would be where given that delineates which homes are inside the perimeter vs outside.
74,the town where I used to live was on the MA Bay Colony frontier in the 1600’s & early 1700’s and those who lived outside of the village were easier prey when the Indians attacked or hunting parties passed through. The villagers would be alerted when they saw the smoke from a burning homestead, but it was always too late to help.
