Work Crews Join Forces

The students of the Black Locust Crew of the Evergreen Charter Community School toured the lumberyard operations of the Warren Wilson Forestry Crew this past week. They delivered some black locust logs to the crew, who in turn milled the logs into dimensional lumber and delivered it to the school. The Black Locust Crew will be building a firewood shed with the lumber to dry wood for future campouts.

Forestry Crew on Max Patch

On November 9 four Warren Wilson Forestry Crew students worked with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy removing trees on Max Patch. This work was done to open up the views along the Appalachian Trail and to recreate the conditions of the bald.
Thanks to Rhys Brydon-Williams for organizing the service trip, and for Liam Bonk, Peter Arnold, and Dylan Bahoosh for giving their hard work to the project.

Firewood Day 2013

On November 2 the Forestry Crew held their annual Firewood Day. All full-time staff and faculty who reply by the deadline are eligible to receive a portion of hardwood firewood. The crew distributed firewood to a record number of more than 70 recipients. As usual, it was also a great time for the crew to spend time together with other members of the Warren Wilson community.
