Pruning Project at Crozet Park

On a crisp, sunny day in mid-January, a team of CATS volunteers provided much-needed pruning and TLC to young trees and a handsome row of crape myrtles at Claudius Crozet Park. The pruners removed dead branches, lower limbs that obstructed vehicles and pedestrians, rubbing branches that were damaging tree bark and the vascular system it protects, and weakly attached sprouts and suckers. Led by Kathy Nepote, the work crew included Allen Ingling, Tim Maywalt, Toine Wyckoff, Pat Punch, Barbara White, Martha Orton, Robert Orton and Bill Sublette.
