At the LeFurge Woods Nature Preserve there is a fencerow that runs West to East when you exit the parking lot and start at the trailhead. It is severely overgrown with a lot of non-native species, primarily Buckthorn. I thought it might make a good winter project to start clearing it out! It’s especially nice...
Series: LeFurge Fence Row
A 2023 project was to clear the fencerow near the LeFurge trailhead of invasive Buckthorn trees. This shows daily progress toward completing the work.
LeFurge Fencerow Clearing – Day 1
Starting work on clearing this overgrown fence row at LeFurge near the trailhead. This was after Day 1, a couple of hours work. Mostly in the very corner, and in the opening that some prior work groups whittled away at.
LeFurge Fencerow Clearing – Day 2
This big old Buckthorn was girdled a couple of years ago, and is now mostly dead. It needs to go! The sky line is already opening up! Started taking down a really gnarly old Buckthorn! A bit of a challenge, but now it is (mostly) gone!
