anyone been down to see that the tree is still there?
i live in rollinsville proper and i've always thought the land on the north side of the river was owned by the railroad (until you reach the fishing club) but looking at the county map there is indeed a private landowner on the north side and apparently the island. the records show this land to be owned by Kent Bartlo ( a local Ned guy involved in community events like the Peak to Peak music festival). Why don't we see if we can get a response from him regarding this tree...maybe he can help explain or give permission to go in and remove it.
I found his mailing address and email if anyone would like to handle this task. LMK firstname.lastname@example.org
or po box 331, rollinsville, co 80474. please do not spam this guy as he could be our friend in this matter.
i'd be up for helping out with the removal, if we get the okay (seen Deliverance too many times)
