Title: Another Cottonwood Bites the Dust on a Canal Trail
Post by: Michael Caswell on June 13, 2020, 05:04:10 am
This one is right across the Oxbow Trail

The culprit?

A massive entanglement of Bittersweet vines in the tree canopy.

We are lucky no one was killed.

The maintenance department of the Canal Corporation has been notified and they are scheduled to deal with this problem next week.

Nick Turner of 14 Erie Crescent  has dealt with the problem, and sawed up the tree this morning.

Thanks Nick! :) :) :)
Title: Another Willow Bites the Dust on The Oxbow Lake Canal Trail

Lightening striking twice on this same entrance to the Oxbow Lake Trail and Park, another massive tree down, blocking trail access.

But the ECNA sent it's Top Guys out to cleanup the mess, a couple old guys with weed wackers and a mini chainsaw.

And the usual band of volunteers showed up to help, Eric Gavelis and kids

Just in time to clear the shoreline of weeds so these Junior Fisherman can get a line in the water and fish for dinner

And just a reminder, the Erie Canal Neighbors Association does maintain this 4 acre Park & Trail, that's why we are here...to help
