|Removal of Overgrown and Dying Trees Behind the Club
The row of trees at the east end of the Middleton Curling Club had become excessively large and were posing a significant threat to
the building's roof. From counting the tree rings, it appears the trees were planted in the early 1950's. Indeed, one large pine and one
good size maple were already dead.
In addition to posing risk of physical damage to the club's ice shed, the trees had become a safe haven for raccoons that had
previously caused destruction inside the facility.
The felling of the trees was contracted to a local arborist, but the cleanup was done by club members.
