Help Us Care for Our Trees
This photo shows the sawdust at the base which is the sign of insect activity in the standing dead tree.
The Georgia extension agent came out to talk with us about the trees dying in our Memorial Garden and surrounding area. The trees are being attacked by bugs and they have jumped to multiple tree species. The extension agent says we must get the dead trees down as soon as possible to keep the problem from spreading.
R.J. McCaulley and Al Virgin got a number of trees down today. They need to have the limbs cut off and burned and the trunks cut up and hauled off. If you can assist with this, Al Virgin will be at the church at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday, November 20) to get the trees limbs off and burned. We already have a lot of the wood cut up. If you want to burn it in your fireplace, it is good hardwood. You or anyone you know who can use it is welcome to the wood.
If you have a chainsaw or other equipment to help with the work, or are just willing to work to haul limbs and feed the fire, please come and work tomorrow. It will help us save our remaining trees.
