The US Forestry Service

The Michigan lumberjacks (and -jills) in Prospect Park have been identified! They are from the US Forestry Service. A federal agency. Mitt would not like them. Big government.

(I asked, on the Prospect Park Facebook page, and received an answer, today. About the lumberjacks. Not about Mitt.)

They rock.

Here is a link that explains where their US Forestry Service emergency crews have been dispatched. I wonder if these were some of the "hotshot crews". It makes my blood tingle with appreciation and admiration. They worked. I love it when people know how to and do work.

It becomes a thing of beauty.


  1. There is no denying that there is something very cool about watching arborists at work. Hope you are well.

  2. They know their trees. TIIIIMBERRRRR!

  3. Yep. National Response Framework. Trees. Forest. Can't do it alone. Thanks for that link.

    1. Nope! There were Lumberjills, too. I'm just not used to seeing people actually working hard in that park.

  5. Absolutely. Guys (and girls) who work the trees - superb : )
    (PS...not too keen on the new comments format, just saying)

  6. Fortunately, we no longer must be concerned about the Mittster and his strange views. Plus, Big Bird is now safe, and we are, too.

  7. Watching skilled people do a great job like that gives me a renewed appreciation of that old fashioned term "master craftsman".
