UPDATE: Because rain is in the forecast for Monday, the work session has been shifted to Tuesday, June 11.
Next Monday, June 10, from 5 to 7 p.m., the Hilltop Conservancy will be cutting logs, big branches and thick vines at next year’s tree-planting site. In April 27, volunteers planted 80 trees on a one-acre plot next to Prisoner’s Pond, which was the first phase of a five-year, five-acre forest regeneration project.

“You’ll be happy to hear that based on our test with an excavator this past March, we can use a machine to clear and stack the items you cut,” writes Theresa Trapp, treasurer of the Hilltop Conservancy. “No more dragging brush and logs into big piles — yay!! (unless you really really want to).”

The Conservancy is looking for volunteers to cut items that might be difficult for the machine, such as long fallen tree trunks, thick vines and bush honeysuckle branches. Volunteers can bring chainsaws and pruning saws if they have them.

The work will be in the area of the Hilltop Reservation above Freedom and Liberty fields off White Rock Road.

The Conservancy will hold regular working groups on the second Monday of the month from May to September. For details about the forest regeneration project or the working sessions, visit
