Excerpt from June 23, 2007 Trailday Newsletter
Chinaberry Attack

On Saturday, June 16, we launched an all-out frontal attack on the Chinaberry trees on Phase 2 of the Trail. Master Chainsaw-er Dan Cleary led a group of able-bodied men consisting of Harry Bowman, Robert Bowman, Peter Mueller and Yours Truly (Bruce.)

We removed some very large trees, some up to 50 feet tall. These extremely invasive trees are spreading rapidly all from 1 tree that fell over in a hurricane as well as the birds that are consuming the seeds. Much was accomplished by this group. Thanks guys!

Robert Bowman, Dr. Harry Bowman, Bruce Brown and Dan Cleary
