  • Update on the tree removal and replanting project (and white X marks) - Friends of Carpenter's WoodsFriends of Carpenter's Woods
    be removed as well as all other trees that if dead would present some form of hazard potentially strike a road trail sidewalk or power line On Wednesday they will size and tally all marked trees As they do so they will put a white chalk dot on each tree to signify that it has been inventoried They will paint a white X on all hazard trees outside that 40 foot zone These are trees to be removed They will also paint a white X on all non hazard trees that are just within the 40 foot boundary so that the contractor knows that they need to come out Sarah will GPS locate all trees marked for removal They may paint a white T on a few of the trees to signify topping the tree to a certain height rather than removing it The plans for what to do at the site and when to do it have not changed since I sent you the initial description about conditions and proposed work Curtis has written specifications that encompass all the USFS sites The specs are comprised of 13 different files with multiple pages It is much more detail that people would generally have interest in The summary and maps that I sent to you posted below on May 4 accurately describe the work specific to Carpenter s Sarah will produce an additional map after Wednesday that shows the locations of all trees to be removed We will send that map to you We have not developed a planting plan yet for the site We will send that as well when finished Recommend on Facebook Tweet about it Subscribe to the comments on this post This entry was posted in Uncategorized Bookmark the permalink Last chance to see great photos JOIN

    September and March Also starting in early September contractors will spray with herbicide and then brush mow invasive understory plants such as burning bush English ivy and knotweed from portions of the woods The best part comes in September and October 2011 when these areas will be replanted with native trees and shrubs The final result will be better habitat for native wildlife and safer woods for everyone Tom Witmer Director of Natural Resources for Fairmount Park gave us this description of the work He also provided this map of the areas to be sprayed with herbicide and this one of the area to be mowed He has agreed to work to FoCW to minimize wildlife disturbance during the work Thanks Tom Recommend on Facebook Tweet about it Subscribe to the comments on this post This entry was posted in Uncategorized Bookmark the permalink Photographs of Carpenter s Woods by Linda Fry Goschk Last chance to see great photos JOIN US FOR THE CLOSING RECEPTION Free sponsored by Friends of Carpenter s Woods Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Comment Name Email Website Search for Categories Categories Select Category Bird
