As Green Crew, this project, Comal River, was a lot “firsts” for us. It was our first project; our first time using saws, outside of orientation; our first time herbiciding. This project was our first defining point of our crew and figuring each other out.
This job was cutting down Chinese tallow and the China berries that we could find. At the time, Marinda was our only team leader. Due to that and we had Matty B, Samantha, and Trent came out and showed us, newbs, how to work a saw and fell trees.
During that time, we had Annie and Colin came out to make sure we were behaving and following rules. We as a crew made a bet with Annie and Colin that if we pass with flying colors, they would do a dance for us.
