Oak Rescue at Irish Oaks Nov. 3
Site steward Margee Pieper points to the oak that will be rescued on Nov. 3.
Can you see it behind all that invasive brush? You’ll have a much better view of it after our rescue!
An Oak Rescue is a way people can join together and free an old oak tree from the brush that surrounds it. Some people cut the brush with saws and loppers, while others stack the cut brush into piles. It's a few hours of work that is gratifying because we leave the big old oak in much better condition than we found it ... free to breathe and reach out its branches, and its acorns are able to grow into big old oaks.
Saturday, Nov. 3 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. No registration required (free lunch!)
