TAKING BACK THE VIEW
With the help of town forester Bill Downs, the Mason Conservation Commission has arranged a timber harvest to address 17 years of growth which threatens to obscure the panoramic view from Greenville Road. Cutting will take place within a one-year window. The CC marked numerous large and scenic trees to be preserved, and flagged a no-cut buffer along both sides of the major trail through the area to preserve trail aesthetics. The rest of the area will be clear cut and allowed to regrow naturally, yielding excellent wildlife habitat as well as keeping the view clear for many years to come.
