This past March, Wachtel crews donated time and equipment to two very worthwhile projects.
At the Mequon Nature Preserve (located between Swan Road and Wauwatosa Road, north of County Line Road), Wachtel arborists donated an entire day, removing invasive buckthorns within the preserves’ 406-acre site. This preserve is currently under rehabilitation to restore it to its natural ecotype—a beech/maple forest. Through a partnership with the Greater Milwaukee Foundation and the Ozaukee/Washington Land Trust, this project has been able to more forward. For more information regarding the Mequon Nature Preserve and how you can contribute, please visit the City of Mequon’s Web site at www.ci.mequon.wi.us
Camp Whitcomb/Mason is a year-round facility located on Lake Keesus near Hartland, Wisconsin. It is a 306-acre site, owned and operated by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Wisconsin. At Camp Whitcomb/Mason, Wachtel arborists donated time and equipment needed to remove hazardous trees that were near the camp’s activity areas. Time was also spent performing needed tree pruning to clear the cabins from low-hanging tree branches. This will benefit the buildings as well as young campers who frequently use this site.

We are proud to offer our services at no charge to these worthwhile organizations. When it comes to trees, Wachtel Tree Science & Service is there to lend a helping hand.
