This was our annual tree-thinning foray to Paw Paw, and this time we were farther north and east, within sight of Fairmount Cemetery. Another good group of volunteers came, including first-time Palos volunteer Dan;Kurt Leslie, whom I hadn't seen at a workday for a spell; and Charlie who previously has been to Cap Sauers.
The Atrium chain sawyers cut a lot and had a pair of fires going by 9:00 am. Volunteers dragged and loaded, starting several more fires along the way. We were quite spread out and, given the uneven terrain, I have no idea how many piles eventually were burned, only that we were quite the productive bunch.
We had only one restoration day last weekend, will have two (January 21 at Cap Sauers, January 22 at Swallow Cliff), weather permitting, this weekend.
