Harding Land Trust Cleans Up With Help From Tree Tech

The property along Sand Spring Road suffered tremendous damage during Hurricane Sandy, one of many HLT properties that lost large deciduous trees during the storm two years ago. Tree Tech sent a crew of 4 to the HLT property where they spent the day clearing tree damage at no cost as part of a project arranged through James Bellis, co-founder of Tree Tech, Inc. and HLT Trustee Catherine Herbst. “We are so grateful for the generosity of Tree Tech and James Bellis. The Harding Land Trust considers them an incredible local partner and resource. We would never be able to complete the work without their assistance,” stated Tim Jones, President of the Harding Land Trust.

The Harding Land Trust is a 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to preserving the farmland, woodlands, and the natural areas that safeguard our resources and protect the rural character of Harding for current and future generations. HLT was recently accredited by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance and is one of only 280 land trusts nationally that have been given this distinctive honor. The Harding Land Trust invites all residents to become members to support open space.
