Educational center partners with Elkhart to remove trees


The Crossing Educational Center has partnered with the city of Elkhart to remove more than 100 trees at Elkhart Municipal Airport. 

The Crossing has a program called The Crossing Extreme, which is a tree removal service run by staff and students as part of its job training program.  The students get credit as well as hands on job experience.

South Bend Crossing Extreme participant, Cullen Hickey, believes the crossing has motivated him to have more of an interest in school.  "I am a hands on type of kid," Hickey said, "I like to be in the woods and be outside; cutting down trees sounds like a good opportunity."

The City of Elkhart contracted the Crossing Tree Team to complete the project in order to comply with new FAA safety standards for runway 36.
