Holland Marsh Drainage System workers were on the job on Wednesday, felling dead trees along the edge of the canals. They are pictured above donning their working gear before starting to cut tall trees that could eventually fall across the canal. In the two photos below, one can see the large adjustable decks on the front of the watercraft, which provide for a stable, in-close working platform.
In the left photo below, one of the workers makes calculated cuts into a dead tree trunk that will make the tall tree trunk fall onto, and parallel to, the canal bank. In the photo on the right, the worker turns and distances himself from the the falling tree trunk.
