The Nature Conservancy in Michigan

Linda Piling Buckthorn
Linda is dragging buckthorn to the pile. Usually we drag bigger branches but she was cleaning up the remnants at the end of the day.

A brushcutter is like a string trimmer except instead of string it has a 9" diameter circular blade with chainsaw teeth that rotates at 10,000 rpm and slices through small trees and shrubs like a knife through a 3 Muskateers bar. Today you can either learn how to use an Efco brushcutter or treat the Morrow Honeysuckle stumps on Northeast Bluff Management Area with a custom made herbicide wand.

P.S. Stick around for cookies and Coke at the end of the day.

P.P.S. After the cookies there is an optional walk over the creek and through the woods.
