Jeff Weir fells problem tree:

On Saturday, September 8th, 2012, Jeff Weir, President of MLSC, felled the very old spruce tree that sat in front of the cabin. This same tree is visible in the historical pictures of the building of the cabin in 1936.

It had become a saftey issue as it had grown into a doubled-headed tree that would have, eventually, fallen onto the cabin.

Jeff made it look easy; it was not.

Jeff is a licensed feller. And not a bad sort of fella too!

In this older pic, the dangerous tree is seen just in front and to the left of the cabin's front door.
