Looks like a section of overhanging trees posed a danger to the Canal Waterway in the Town of Sweden today. There was a crew clearing the trees off the south embankment using a barge rigged with a grappling arm and saw. Trees were being stacked on another barge that was located withing arms length and the Tug was working along to hold the location on the waterway.

Many groups of people nearby, were watching while they fished.





Trees were dropped into the channel, and picked out if needed, we saw a splash and the arm came out with the debris to stack.





The Tugboat was an older model, and was churning the water as it held the whole operation in place along the South Bank
