About two weeks ago, we had a storm whip through the area, and as usual, a few more trees were felled down The Oxbow shoreline and woods. Unfortunately, there are quite a few trees that have died through natural aging, and some that have been overpowered by unchecked vine growth.
The morning after the storm, on my daily meander along the trail with my dogs, I found two very large branches were blocking our path. One in particular was precariously lodged against the tree trunk and held in place by two thin branches.
One wrong move and this could have fallen on someone. It wasn’t anything I had the courage to tackle, so I sent this photo to the Canal Authority and a few days later, they turned up with a backhoe and a wood chipper.
Job done! Just a little sawdust is all that remains!
