If you wield a chainsaw and start cutting vines down on someone else's property you should check with the owner first. They might not want that done.

Again, we were cutting vines in one of the preserves owned by the Open Land Conservancy.

Steve, what the conservancy gets is access to the land, they don't (to the best of my knowledge) own the land. I'd be very careful about cutting anything on that land without permission even if your heart was in the right place. I know when the VFTU does it, they do it in conjunction with the conservancy not on their own.

If it was an approved event from the owner then I stand corrected.....I will say there's absolutely no reason for this "look at me" post anyways. One thing that the nuns actually taught me was that when you do good deeds there's no reason to broadcast it and tell everyone about it....defeats the purpose.

Hey Fox,


Talking with the guys, either by gift or donation they are the owners of the land:

I don't usually get involved in this stuff, but the misinformation in this thread is off the charts. The Open Land Conservancy of Chester County owns the preserve and sponsored the vine cutting on its land. This is pretty easy to check out.

agree with GM, and I seldom agreed with Sister Jean Patrice :)

Actually Fox it was not a VFTU outing. It was a volunteer effort organized by one of the Preserves. Each Preserve has a supervisor who organizes a vine cutting day throughout that particular Preserve. As you know there are 8 Preserves and each of the 8 Supervisors attends the other's Vine Cutting Day. Some of these vines are a good 6 inches wide. We were instructed not to pull them out of the trees after we cut them. Forgot to ask why. As I said earlier, for our own selfish reasons, SRoach and I concentrated our efforts along the stream. As Maurice noted some of these trees were literally choking to death in the upper branch area. As for the prickers and that comment that I post "bull snot" we were simply pruning them back to boot top level so as not to disturb the root system. As for the vines...they were prolific. Amazing how many you start seeing when you are lazered in on finding them. Must be something about that area because when I walked my dog on Sunday along the Rocky Run trail in Middletown Delco I noticed there were no where near as many vines as in those Preserves. There is another Vine Cutting Day in April. PM me for details.

Ahhhhhhhhhh, nice to see that you can go away for one weekend and nothing changes. Carry on boys.

Fade, why were you clearing brush? Was there a TU work weekend or did you do this on your own?

BTW Fade, I'm sure my brother VFTU member had no idea you fished downstream or he would never have suggested a stoner.

Let's get out soon.

I, too, stand corrected. Do you guys hire out? I got crap in my yard that needs cutting.

There was one simple question asked... "why are you cutting streamside brush?" You could have answered in a polite and informative way. After all you are not the only one who fishes the said watershed and that land is there for all of us to use.

Spring is coming and our cabin fever should soon abate! After all K-bob says "no more cold weekends". Now you see why I like the guy so much.

Fade means well, I just enjoy kicking him in a downstream way!
