Round Top Cement Mill is located along the historic C&O Canal. The site is the runis of an old cement mill from the 1800's. Over recent years the mill has become overrun with Ailanthus Altissima (Tree of Heaven)and the integrety of the historic structure has been comprimised.
The East crew teamed up with the West crew, two YCC crews, and several maintance staff from the C&O Canal. The crews worked together to remove the Ailanthus and treat the stumps with herbicide. The trees were bucked and fed into a chipper.
During this project several C&O Canal visitors stopped to chat and see what the crews were to. They were all very impressed at the large collaborative effort to keep the integrety of these structures.
Thank you to all of the hard working crews who made this project possible!
