Shrubbery on the SCT was obscuring the view of vehicular traffic.  I trimmed back shrubbery at Eisley-Stamper, Rosedale, Coppermine and  encroaching kudzu at mile16.  Tough work on a hot Friday afternoon.

Yes, there is a road there!

The Echo pole mounted hedge shear does a great job. I guess it cut work time by 75%.

Encroaching Kudzu & Privet at Mile16:

Tough work cutting back a couple of feet of Kudzu and Privet.  It was hot and I ran out of gas and that was enough for me.
