Seeking Pasture Clean-up Guidelines
Last weekend a drunk driver ran into my pasture (destroyed two of my fences and a utility pole, and damaged three trees in the process) and landed upside down about 10 feet into my pasture. At some point during the accident my pasture was sprayed with tiny bits of glass. The rescue personnel and the helicopter that landed in my pasture pressed many of these bits of glass into the ground. The removal of the car only worsened the situation.
So, I am faced with the insurance follow-up to this accident and I am in need of some official publication that spells out proper pasture clean-up procedure. Any ideas? I have found several that address pasture management, but nothing that is the "official" correct way to clean glass out of a pasture.
So far, everyone I have contacted has recommended scraping the pasture area that is the debris field down 4 inches, disposing of that soil, bringing in and grading new soil and then replanting. This seems like the only option but is quite expensive. I'm pretty certain the insurance company is going to want some documentation that this is what needs to be done, as this not something that appears in their database.
If you have any leads on finding such a publication, I would greatly appreciate it.
