A limb from an oak tree had fallen across the Danielson Fire Road and was blocking the path. The large (20 foot) limb was cut into manageable sized pieces and moved off-trail.
Farther down the trail a cluster of Sycamore limbs blocked the path. This took us more than an hour to untangle, cut and remove the pieces. Safety was our primary concern - 30-foot limbs resting on the broken limbs of other trees. We also learned that sapling branches, when cut, can fling dead branches in other directions! A bit farther down the trail, a cluster of dead Ceanothus and Sycamore trees had edged down towards the ground creating a very low bridge. Equestrians would have been blocked. We removed the branches and trunks that were encroaching upon the trail. Worked with Jon Sheldon.
