They’re baa-ack! Meet the kudzu-clearing sheep

On Friday, Trees Atlanta hosted a meet-and-greet with its four-legged summer employees

      On Friday morning, Trees Atlanta invited curious Atlantans to meet the kudzu-consuming sheep it hires to clear greenspaces each summer. The “Breakfast with the Sheep” event at Chastain Park Conservancy was equal parts family-fun (Crafts! Snacks courtesy of Costco Brookhaven!) and educational seminar (Instruction about the dangers of invasive species like English Ivy and kudzu!).

      Trees Atlanta contracts sheep services from EWE-niversally Green, the company whose four-legged staff also grooms grass at the Atlanta airport. Using sheep is a simple yet effective way to clear overgrown areas without relying on harsh chemicals or extensive human labor.

      If you missed out on this chance to meet the flock, don’t despair: The sheep will put in another public appearance at Tree Atlanta’s October 12 tree sale event.
