35th Annual Revolutionary Run

35th Annual Revolutionary Run

The 35th Annual Revolutionary Run event is USATF Mid-Atlantic sanctioned and officially timed and recorded by CompuScore brought to you every year by the Upper Makefield Business Association. The race draws an audience of 1,000 to 2,000 runners, their families, friends, and spectators. There are 3 separate events: a 10K race, 5K race, and 1 mile “Fun Run”. UMBA and its members, one who happens to be T&T’s owner Rich Mowrey, spend a great deal of time preparing for the race months prior to the event. At daybreak on the 4th, dozens of volunteers coordinate registration, first aid, parking, water stations, and a host of other necessary functions.
UMBA is a community based non-profit organization that donates the proceeds raised through its events. In this particular case, the proceeds are split 50/50 with the Upper Makefield Township designated towards emergency services. In the past, it helped fund ambulance service coverage during severe storms, and special emergency equipment to our police and fire departments. The UMBA portion helps people in dire need with contributions of essential living necessities. And, perhaps our proudest accomplishment has been the UMBA scholarship program, where students pursuing their goals of higher education are aided through financial assistance. Over the past 30 years, in excess of $100,000 has been so granted. Your kind support of events such as this will allow us to continue these efforts for many years to come.

Babies Cause Tree Work Delay in Flemington

baby deer flemington tree services

One of the twin baby deer decides to take refuge over by the side of the house while the T&T Tree Crew work in the yard.

It was just a little after 7:30 am when T&T got a frantic phone call from a Flemington home owner whose tree work we would be doing that day. The tree work consisted of the removal of several pines and spruces, pruning and stump grinding. In other words T&T Tree & Landscaping Services would be at the Flemington residence all day.

And then the call came. Apparently a Mama Doe decided, that under one of the larger trees in the backyard, would be a good place for her newly born babies to stay until they were strong enough to keep up with her. It just so happens that two weeks earlier T&T tree Services put up an article on their Facebook page warning people about taking in baby deer for fear that they are abandoned.

T&T Tree Service’s admin explained to the Flemington home owner, just like in the article, that newborn deer are left alone on purpose by their mothers for protection. As odd as it may sound, staying still and laying low are the newborn’s best defense against predators until its legs are strong enough to keep up with its mother. At this age the babies have no scent and therefore cannot be found unless stumbled upon by accident. The mother is well aware of where her babies are and will periodically visit for the young to feed until they are ready to join her.

One of T&T’s newest members, Christian Maddalena, agreed to move the  babies to another part of the yard so they would be safe and unharmed. The twins had other plans when T&T showed up, one baby ran off to a neighbor’s yard and the other curled up by the foundation of the house behind some bushes.

Tree O Caching with T&T Employees

 April 20, 2015, two T&T Tree and Landscaping Services employees embarked on an adventure set by Treestuff.com. Borrowed from the latest craze “geo-caching”, Treestuff.com, a company that sells equipment for the tree servicing industry, decided to create their own version and just launched “Tree O Caching”. Harry Burak, a Certified Arborist and Foreman/Climber, Dan Wargaski, a Foreman/Climber with T&T and friend Dan Lawton who participates in International Tree Climbing Events, grabbed their gear and set off to find the Tree O Caching bucket. The trio was the first to find the PA cache and was very well rewarded for their efforts with donations put in the bucket from Treestuff.com. In “caching” fashion, Harry made sure to leave something behind: a T&T Tree & Landscaping Services T-shirt and lots of business cards.”

Huge Bucks County Sycamore Tree Unfortunate Removal

A huge Bucks County Sycamore tree brings back memories for one family, although not fondly. Located on a old farm in eastern Pennsylvania, this Sycamore tree  had wreaked havoc and destruction on the unsuspecting family many years ago. The patriarch “John”, of the current family, was just a young boy, when the fateful day happened. Set on one of Bucks County bucolic back roads, the farm has a diverse amount of hard wood trees surrounding the immediate property. One day back in 1946, the already immensely grown Sycamore tree that grew just outside the walls, where the kitchen lay, the top half of the Sycamore tree fell over. John’s brother had just walked out of the kitchen back door, only moments before the old tree fell, destroying the entire kitchen.

Since then, the kitchen has been replaced while the remaining part of the Sycamore tree proceeded to keep growing. Sadly, over the next 69 years, the Sycamore tree took a turn for the worse and began to steadily decline. During this deterioration, it leaned, and loomed, over the kitchen again, causing the family distress. The family could not bear to have history repeat itself, and with a neighbor’s referral, they called T&T Tree & Landscaping Services for removal of the Sycamore, and advice for pruning and trimming some other towering trees on the property.

Looking at the picture you can see that the Sycamore tree did indeed decline drastically and had become mostly hollow shell. While the owner’s regret having to remove the old tree to save themselves from future damage, they were very happy with the results the rest of their trees’ branches and limbs received, some very crucial pruning and trimming, especially to one very deep rooted, majestic Silver Maple
