Vine Removal on the Muddy River
Dennis Pultinas is a local arborist who volunteers his time along the Emerald Necklace. This year he has been cutting bittersweet vine strangling beautiful mature trees on the Muddy River. Removal of bittersweet and wild grape vines allows mature trees to flourish and helps native fauna to re-establish itself.
Last fall he started by the 66 Bus stop on Route 9, below the Jamaicaway overpass (see photo, right, taken from River Road looking over the Muddy, toward the overpass). This spring he continued along the new bike path that runs parallel to Brookline Avenue, along River Road. He also cut vines by the bridge by Netherlands Road. The slideshow below shows the recent work along the new bike path.
Thank you Dennis for your dedication to the health of our trees along the Muddy!
