FYI, it’s not ALL fun and games at Rosslyn. Sometimes there’s tough work to do! Like root wrangling, for example… But there’s no reason work shouldn’t also be fun, right?
Do you remember that whopper of a storm this summer, the microburst that blasted Rosslyn, snapping limbs and uprooting trees? At last we’ve de-stumped and extracted the root balls.
How did it go? You decide.
An excavator muscled the massive root systems out of the earth. And, in the case of the video above, extraction involved breaking the stump and root ball into smaller, more manageable debris.
But the towering sugar maple that was destroyed by the microburst didn’t yield to mechanical muscle quite as readily. And so Bob (driving the tractor) and Hroth (root wrangling) applied the rodeo treatment!
Hard work, for sure. But at least a little bit fun too!
What do you think?
