The latest big scare out of Washington D.C. is “invertors,” U.S. companies bailing on the red, white and blue, taking their billions in tax dollars elsewhere, money the government needs for things like roads, education, research.

The Stowe Land Trust completed bridge repair at Wiessner Woods with the help of young people from Vacation Bible School in Stowe, the Stowe Recreation Department’s summer day camp, and from the Laraway School in Johnson. The volunteers hauled the replacement boards three-quarters of a mile into the woods; then they tore up old, degraded boards, drilled and hammered new ones in their place, and measured and constructed railings. Lots of patience and precision were required. Stowe Land Trust did some careful thinking about what wood to use for the project, and where to get it. It opted for the most durable, affordable and local option it could find: rough hemlock boards from the M.B. Heath & Sons Lumber Mill in North Hyde Park. The boards came from trees harvested within 60 miles of the mill.
