September Tree Removal

Tree Removal - 09/06/2020

Three very tall spruce trees (one Norway and two White Spruce) were removed from the parish grounds between the church and the rectory. The Norway spruce was over three feet in diameter and all three trees had grown to unsafe heights, posing a possibility of them falling during stormy weather. A special thank you to all the laborers in this hard work and also to our Parish Council for deciding to have the trees removed. The trees will be put to good use at a local farm and a small fruit orchard will be planted where they formerly stood.
