Lots of power tools running this morning, including Mark and Brendan from FPCC Resource Management. A big thanks for their help!
We cleared brush a short distance west of Old Country Lane and our previous work site in September. Cleared a lot of brush; check the before and after pics below. This spot has a horrible infestation of bittersweet, which wraps and tangles everything it touches. Nasty, Nasty!
The dampness made for good fungus weather and a couple interesting varieties turned up, also pictured below. Snow that followed within 48 hours put a huge damper on FPCC plans for prescribed burns; now they have to await this weekend's rains, then hope for a few dry days, before any burning can be contemplated. The prescribed burn is a terrific tool but one whose moments are quite fleeting.
We canceled our November 25 date at Swallow Cliff Woods South, will be back there on Sunday December 23.
