Neil Behnke of BlackForest wins John Deere Contest, “Small Machines – Big Impact.” Kudos to the good folks at John Deere for donating use of a tractor to someone who has had a big impact. Neil Behnke of Black Forest was that person! Neil and other volunteers from Black Forest Together have helped clear Black Forest Wildfire burned and brittle trees for those who don’t have the resources or ability to do it themselves.
Clearing your land of burned trees, stumps and slash is a hard, dirty, exhausting job. It can go on for years, unless you have help. That’s when friends, family, neighbors and volunteers are such a blessing!
