Got Pond?

Sizzling summer, the time of year when our thoughts turn to popsicles and poolsÖ anywhere, anyhow to cool off. And what could be better than your own private little pond? Itís also this time of year, however, that one begins to notice the problems that can crop up in that bowl of liquid heaven. Is your pond turning into a mud pit? Green scum encrusted? Weeds too thick to wade through? Donít fret and put that bathing cap back on; most pond problems have a workable solution.

Portable Skidder Bridge Rental Program

 The Windham County Natural Resources Conservation District in cooperation with the Watershed Forestry Program of the Agency of Natural Resources have constructed two portable skidder bridges to rent to loggers and consulting foresters in Windham County. If you are interested in further information regarding the Rental Program please contact Jolene Hamilton at (802) 254-5323, Ext. 104skidderbridge.gif 

Portable skidder bridges are designed and intended for use as temporary structures for crossing streams during logging. They are also economical since they are reusable, and easy to install and transport from job to job. They are a reliable solution to help reduce logging costs associated with temporary stream crossings. Portable skidder bridges ensure that equipment and logs crossing over water bodies are not  causing stream bed or streambank disturbance and thus minimizing the potential for soil erosion. Portable skidder bridges allow loggers to harvest timber in compliance with Vermont’s AMP’s.
