WINTER BRUSHING PROGRAM
We are looking for any producers that may want winter brushing done on roadsides adjoining your own land, ( must own the land as rented land needs the request from owner). If you feel you would like us to have brush/trees removed from roadside/field edges, please come in to our office and fill in a requisition. That can be done with the office staff. Once the requisition is complete, the Agricultural Fieldman will, at his convenience, check out the request and reply to the requisition. Note that there is no charge to the landowner for this service.
FREE FIREWOOD AVAILABLE
In the winter of 2013/2014 we had brushed areas on Range Road 35 north of TWP road 824 on the west side to the border of TWP RD 830. There is some decked poplar that can be utilized for firewood that is now over a year old. In the winter of 2014/2015, we had piles that may be cut and used for firewood. The majority of the wood borders the edge of the producer's field and our municipal ditch so there is fairly easy access. We also brushed Range Road 63 between TWP roads 814 and 820 and there is plenty of firewood there too. You should contact the producer if you need to access his land to retrieve any firewood as we are not responsible for any trespass. There is no charge for the wood you take but please keep the areas tidy.
