… the Three BrushCuteers cried as they fired up their chainsaws. Rich, Lindsay and I took the battle to the enemy today and many a stout and formidable foe was slain, dismembered and piled. The battle ground was the hilltop/sand dune just above the Hillside and Hidden Springs (see Map), where we have been working recently.
Rich Csavoy attacked a patch of Black Locust.
And it’s clear who got the better of this fight!
Porthos, aka Lindsay Knudsvig, beat back a frontal assault of Buckthorn and Black Locust while defending the High Ground.
When it was over, you could not cross the battlefield without stepping on a corpse of the invasive enemy.
Meanwhile, Paul ambushed a small army of Buckthorn attempting to sneak up on Lindsay’s blind side.
They never new what hit them.
Anne Korman, Assistant Superintendent of the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, stopped by to enjoy the Springs and offer support and encouragement. Thanks!
This Saturday, December 1rst, The Three BrushCuteers plan to return to the field of battle in the same location. Hope to see you at the Springs!
