A huge THANK YOU to all the neighbors who joined members of the GHI Woodlands Committee on Saturday, June 20, to cut down a prodigious amount of Golden Bamboo from GHI wooded areas near 2, 4, and 6 Courts of Ridge.
The mission here was to create access to the back yards of these units. Several feel are required for safety purposes. The piles of bamboo we created were then collected by GHI and sent off to be put through a tub grinder because bamboo fibers can clog a normal chipper.
Gavin Olsen saved one piece of bamboo with fishing pole potential. His brother Keller also helped that morning, along with Keith Bare, Teresa Smithson, Karen Peterson, Eric Leuliette, John Paul Schmit, and Richard Menis.
