Volunteering at Chattahoochee Nature Center
Sprucing up the Eagle Enclosure
This spring our certified Lead Arborist, Nick LeCroy, dedicated his time and services to the Chattahoochee Nature Center to help trim a troublesome tulip poplar that threatened to damage the netting of the eagle enclosure.
However, the fast-growing tulip poplar impeding the net also began to hinder flight paths in the enclosure. To keep the eagles safe and protected, Nick trims back the spiny limbs every spring during the eagle's yearly health examination.
Although topping trees and pruning back limbs isn't a conventional arboricultural practice, it was required to establish the netting in the enclosure.
