WEED WRENCHES

´╗┐We often hear, “What ARE those tools for pulling out scotch broom? And do you have one I can use?” The answer is “Yes” – we loan out weed wrenches for pulling those tough yellow-flowering stalks, whether you have just a few or a field full. As the weather warms, and things are starting to bloom, our weed wrenches become very popular items and there may be a waiting list to get one. If you know in advance when you’ll be needing one, call us at 463-2644 to see what we have available or to reserve. We have them in 4 sizes and we do our best to accommodate all the requests that come in during this busy weed-pulling season.

Contact 463-2644 or info@vashonlandtrust.org

Keeping it wild

Located in the central Puget Sound basin, Vashon-Maury Island is passionate about retaining a rural and natural character amidst today’s rampant development. Vashon-Maury is surrounded by the Puget Sound megalopolis where population has doubled in the past twenty years, and natural places are being paved over as rapidly as possible.

Vashon itself is about 12 miles long. Maury is about 6 miles long and is attached to Vashon by a narrow isthmus. Together, they are about 25,000-acres (~37 sq.mi.), with a population of about 11,000. With saltwater shorelines of 51 miles, Vashon-Maury has over half of the shoreline of King County. Vashon-Maury was once a thriving agricultural community serving the Puget Sound market with produce. Now, however, it is primarily a commuter community with many tele-commuters. READ MORE
