While Al and I were conducting the survey, Mike King of Berkshire Stump Grinding was working on turning two giant stumps (one 48" diameter, one 52" diameter), left behind from a pair of lightning-struck willows that were removed back in August, into piles of mulch. We try to utilize everything we can here, so this mulch will likely go into rehabbing and beautifying the flower beds around the house.

Stump Grinding and Surveying
A busy day here at the KCC on Tuesday, December 11th. ATC is working with Al Thorp of Accord Engineering and Surveying, LLC of Great Barrington, MA to conduct a topographical survey of the parcels including the house and barns as well as the field areas on either side. This type of survey generates a lot of useful and highly detailed info about the topography, location of structures and roads, types of vegetation, underground utilities, etc that will be used in our planning phases for increasing parking capacity on site as well as barn renovations. Al was kind enough to let me tote the prism pole around while he took measurements from various points. Here are a few photos of Al in action.
