Colonial Tree was back out this month to finish cleaning the woods on holes 15, 16 & 17 of remnants from Hurricane Ida.  They removed dead wood that was cut up and let lie.  Colonial also cut down any remaining dead trees that were standing.  While here, Colonial also had our brush pile ground up and removed.  The wooded area left of 16 will fill back in with native plants in time.
