On Saturday, April 7, LCC LERT advanced chainsaw team members helped remove debris and dangerous trees over homes for Habitat for Humanity in Elgin, Illinois. They were able to use a boom lift and safety rigging to complete the precision tree felling.
Ed Boerman, ASI Certified Arborist & LCC LERT Chainsaw Instructor from Trinity, Lisle was the team leader for this project. Other LERT team members working were:
Derek Kowalczyk – Cross, Yorkville Steve Chester – St. John, Wheaton Marty Johnson - St. John, Wheaton Rich Wren - St. John, Wheaton Ralph Hinkle - St. John, Wheaton
Habitat for Humanity and the homeowners were very appreciative for their hard work and professional assistance.
