Dane County Chapter – Invasive Shrub and Tree Removal
November 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Notice: This activity has changed as seeds won’t be available before December.
We will be creating a fire break by cutting invasive brush and box elder trees with chainsaws and hand tools, treating stumps and burning brush piles. If you have a chainsaw and PPE, please bring it. I will provide herbicide and loppers.
Please bring work gloves and wear long sleeves to protect against the brush. If you need work gloves or protective eye glasses, let me know. If you like the warmth of a fire, you should be wearing wool or cotton as an outer layer. Fleece and synthetics will melt as a spark hit them. A sweatshirt on top of these will provide good protection.
If you plan to stay all day, please bring drinking water and some lunch. I will provide some food/drinks to share for lunch, including brats to cook on the fire.
Feel free to come if you can stay only part of the day. Please RSVP so I have enough tools with me.
