A Tree Falls at the Agroforestry Site

Over the 2012 Winter Break, the forestry and landscaping crews collaborated to fell a large white pine tree that posed a hazard to the experimental agroforestry site. The site currently has several active components, including a patch of black locust trees, several different species of fruit trees, and a host of native medicinal herbs.

Landscaping crew assistant supervisor (and 2012 alum) Caleb Mende topped the pine, and forestry crew supervisor Shawn Swartz felled the remaining timber.
