On August 29, a hard-working five-member team from a local firm— Source One Technology Solutions, spent three hours clearing invasive vegetation from the Borough Woodlands. The tool of choice for this work is a Weed Wrench, which literally wrenches shrubs and small trees out of the soil. These are the orange tools wielded by Rebecca and Robert in the photos.
The full Source One crew consisted of Linda Ake, Rebecca Chang, Bill Granneman, Matt Uhrig, and Robert Uhrig. As an encore to their invasive removal efforts, the crew patched up one of our deer exclosures that had been badly damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
If you think you have an interest in trying your hand at weed wrenching or deer exclosure patching, contact the Woodland Management Committee chairman Jerry Uhrig at jUhrig@att.net.. We would be delighted to help you organize the effort.
