Tree Trimming in the Hollow - with @svec_coop
A few weeks ago, our local power company came through to clear some trees along the right of way in the back, behind the cabin. They've been working for a while on this project and our neighborhood's turn finally came - only the crews were interrupted by the big snow that happened last month.
They came back today to clean up all the downed branches and trees that had been removed. So right now I'm getting serenaded with safety beepers and chippers. (Just like at work!)
Beaver Run cuts through here, so there is a steep little valley that makes it interesting with these vehicles, but as the one photo shows, that is not stopping them.
Earlier I took a walk out there to check everything out - it struck me that my little yard is only part of the whole county, and their effort has been going on for some time. It's quite the industry.
Then one of the guys said that they actually used helicopters up in here to take down the branches that were too close to the lines. I was sorry I missed that - had no idea.
I decided to look it up online though - and I found a good explanation video on YouTube that I have embedded below. Pretty good show - I still wish I could have seen it in person!
