Tree service project at Epiphany
Dec 1st 9:00 am 4:00 pm
This activity was for the Church of Epiphany which is where we hold most of our troop meetings and the church needed to have a tree removed. We had trained adults opertating the equipment and scouts providing the muscle to move and stack the wood. There was a large group from the troop present, with food and hot drinks to keep the workers energized. With 2 splitters and many chainsaws, we were able to complete the task in one day with clean up of branches and smaller debris to happen in the spring by the Cub Scout Pack.
