Workers take down dying tree at Mount Bethel

Workers from Doug's Tree Service spent the afternoon sawing apart a rotted tree at Mount Bethel Cemetery. A few weeks ago, a large limb fell from the aging tree. Also on scene was a 120-foot crane from Bob's Crane. At $200 an hour, the crane allowed workers to reach extreme high points of the tree. A representative of the cemetery reckoned the tree's age to be about 100 years old. The bill from Doug's Tree Service is estimated at $1,900, in addition to costs of operating the crane. Several trees have been removed from the cemetery within the past year due to rot and storm damage.
