The Rohr house i slocated within the FOur Locks district of the C&O Canal (Easter Portion). The Rohr house is located off of the towpath and is currently not used by the NPS for any specific reason.
Over the years of abandonment, the vegetation along the perimeter of the house/property is encroaching upon the house threatening property damage.
Pathces of Ailanthus trees were removed from the garden area and overgrown trees were removed from the front porch (onto the roof). All stumps were treated with Garlon 3A.
Chris Stubbs, Chief of Resources Management Division of the C&O Canal, joined the crew for a day of work. He removed an unruley pathc of Wisteria from the side of the porch. He worked up some sweat and got to witness first hand the work of the SCA Vegetation Removal Crews!
