Shane falling a 25 foot tree from Elisapa's field

Shane decided to start the training on a virgin piece if land that had not been used for farming. This is a huge task as you have to cut down trees, dig up stumps and clear it of the strong Sudan Grass and other vegetation. Shane wanted them to see how to do this and that if you do it right, you will never have to till that plot again. This is going to be extremely hard work! But if you know Shane...I'm not sure he's ever met work too hard for him!
