A number of trees came down over the trails during the winter, including some large Tulips on the Birchbank Mountain trails. Rather than a full work party a pair of Trail Committee members; Jim Taradine & Rich Skudlarek (which Google's spellcheck wants to change to Tardiness and Skulker for some reason) went out to clear the worst of the mess.
Here's Jim sizing up the mess. Rich is probably offering helpful advice on how Jim should remove the tree.
Not sure if this was Rich's advice, but Jim started to take the tree apart with his bare hands.
But ultimately resorted to using chainsaws.
The Trails Committee will hold a Spring Wildflower Walk at Birchbank on April 29th (Saturday) at 10:00 hike. You can come out an enjoy not having to hike up, over, and around all of the blowdowns.
