City aids volunteer efforts to clear trails.

Volunteer trail work parties have cleared brush and blackberries at two SW Portland locations.  Their work resulted in huge piles of brush.  At the urging of SW Trails, the city has cleared away both piles of brush.

At a “Weed Pullin’ party on Nov 26, 2013 at the intersection of the proposed Red Electric Trail and SW Capital Highway, volunteers cut weeds and blackberries and trimmed trees and created a large pile of brush. The city recently removed this large pile of brush.
