Back to Willow West, one of this writer's favorite places. We again worked near the cemetery boundary, with Joe hoping to bring more light to ground level just inside the fence. A bit cold starting out, things got better as the morning wore on and the fire grew.
We got some good work done, hauling a number of the cut pieces a distance to avoid having multiple burn scars. Our fellers were stellar in keeping fallen limbs off the cemetery fence.
Back to Paddock after skipping a week due to cold temps, we walked portions of the site first looking at potential locations for future workdays. Then we settled on one right off the trail, hacking and flailing at the honeysuckle for the next two hours. It went well and we heard some encouraging words from locals passing by.
Thank you Douglas for organizing and running these days, and thank you to all the volunteers who continue to participate. This will be a regular Wednesday event in the foreseeable future.
