Super Invasive Volunteer Jerry demonstrates weed wrench use

Thanks to the Bouldin Neighborhood Parks Committee for hosting their second monthly volunteer workday.  We continued to pull out or cut down Invasive species in the greenbelt as part of City approved restoration plan.  We focused on the “big 3″ – ligustrum, chinaberry and nandina.

Building the winrow

We were aided by Parks Committee Sal who brought his landscaping crew to take out some of the bigger trees.  Volunteers worked with hand saws, loppers and weed wrenches and stacked the invasives into winrows to minimize the spread of seeds.   The next volunteer workday is Sat, Feb 20 from 8:30 am to 1 pm.  Snacks are served and they were yummy (breakfast tacos and later pizza.)
