Town of Rockford
Team Rubicon is a veteran-led international organization that helps clean-up communities after a disaster. They cut down trees that may endanger buildings and/or automobiles, cut up logs for firewood and they also will chip up debris if a chipper is available to them. They also train future sawyers in the proper use of all types of saws.
Most of you remember the “micro-burst” windstorm that came through Rockford last August. There is still debris left from that event and there are trees that were weakened by the storm and for safety should come down. Team Rubicon did an assessment in Rockford and found that there is enough storm damage in several parts of town that they would like to clean-up.
Team Rubicon is planning on doing work in Rockford in April. Their service is free and they are licensed, bonded and insured. They only ask that the property owner fill out a “right-of-entry” form to allow them to do the work on their property.
They have been to Malden, WA on several occasions after the 2020 Babb Road Fire. Hundreds of burnt trees have been removed, which has been a huge help in the rebuilding of the town.
If you are interested, please complete a right-of-entry form, which can be found here. Once completed forms have been received at Town Hall, the team will be able to tell how many sawyers will be in town and for how many days.
If you have questions, please call Micki Harnois at (509) 868-3102 or for the local Team Rubicon chapter (Deer Park) call (509) 688-9001
