    Fecon, Inc. Supports Community Vegetation Management Seminar

    A Honeysuckle Removal Demonstration Project was offered on March 23, 2013, at the Countryside YMCA in featuring the Bull Hog mulcher, manufactured by Fecon, Inc.

    “Fecon is proud to support the community and environment by participating in projects like this”, said Dennis Goldbach of Fecon. “It was a great opportunity to partner with the local YMCA, and the Warren County Soil & Water Conservation District, who’s Bull Hog was used to for the demonstration.”

    The free seminar was hosted in Lebanon, OH, by Reuben Smith of Countryside YMCA. Over 30 attendees were shown effective methods for removing non-native and invasive Honeysuckle that thrives in OH. Attendees were also educated on how Honeysuckle can choke out native vegetation, and have a potentially huge impact on migrating bird populations due to the reduction in availability of native food sources, according to the Ohio DNR. Honeysuckle can grow up to 20’ tall with multiple 3-5” diameter stems. Goldbach explained how the Bull Hog mulcher effectively removes the Honeysuckle by safely cutting it into a carpet of mulch. Residents were also informed that Warren County SWCD rents their Bull Hog out at a rate of $40/HR, to enable land owners to cost-effectively improve the environmental health of their properties.
