HTS helps out at Sauk Creek Nature Preserve
On a recent, mild January day, the Hoppe Tree Service crew volunteered our time and equipment to perform a much needed tree removal at the Sauk Creek Nature Preserve. The Sauk Creek Nature Preserve is a 27-acre natural area in Port Washington. The creek runs north and south over limestone bedrock ledges, and eventually flows into Lake Michigan near the Port Washington Marina.
This tree in question was a decrepit old hazardous box elder tree that was standing right next to the entrance of the Nature Preserve. It was certainly time for this tree to be removed. The top of the tree had broken parts and major die back. Our crew removed the tree and hauled away the debris, which will now allow the Sauk Creek Nature Preserve main entrance to get a nice makeover in the spring. The Sauk Creek Nature Preserve is managed by the Ozaukee Washington Land Trust. The Land Trust is an organization dedicated to protecting and preserving natural areas, open spaces and the rural character of Ozaukee and Washington Counties.
Hoppe Tree Service is proud of our association with this excellent group. Over the years, we have volunteered at many of the land trust’s preserves and partnership properties. We have removed buckthorns, chipped up piles of debris and performed numerous other tree related tasks. The Ozaukee Washington Land Trust looks has a very large amount of acreage and land to watch over, and it certainly is a natural fit for Hoppe Tree Service to do our part in helping where we can.
