Tree trenching

While using a trenching machine certainly makes the job of cutting through the roots of an oak tree easier, it is still a major project for the Fairfield Park and Recreation Department crew. The objective is to decrease the mingling of oak wilt-diseased tree roots with those of the newer oaks. The diseased oak is at left with the stump of another diseased tree cut down two years ago nearby. Park superintendent Pam Craff and park and rec department director Derek Wulfkuehl discuss the process while Levi Amrine operates the trencher.
