The Yearly Haircut

One of the things the crew can count on each winter is the annual pruning of our wetlands crossings on #2, 8, 12, and 14.  According to the conditions of our permit, we may only do this trimming during January and February, and only hand tools can be used. 

The finished product on #12.

So, no gas powered hedge clippers or chain saws for this work--the guys go old school with lopping shears and hedge shears to cut back the new growth over these four acres.  By the time they're finished their forearms are like Popeye's.

The crew is debating which one of them is pictured in the foreground.
