A great day for an Oak Rescue

TLC hosted an Oak Rescue on New Year’s Eve at Crowley Oaks Woods in Harvard.
What is an oak rescue? It’s an opportunity for people to work together to free an old oak tree from the brush that surrounds it. Some people cut the brush with saws while others stack the brush into piles that we burn to keep warm. It’s a few hours of work that is gratifying because the big old oak is left in a healthier state … free to breathe and reach out its branches. And its acorns are able to grow into big old oaks.
Thank you to everyone who helped out!
