Community Cuts in Cowichan Valley

The Valley is large!  Connect with an area leader near you, or in an area that you care about.  Many of our cuts will be at close-to-your-home “Cut Anytime” locations, and you will be able to go there on your own time. We can loan you loppers and instruct you on stacking and safety policies. Please contact your area director or our Executive Director for details. Cut the Bloomin’ Broom! – and be well. Your efforts are always appreciated.

Before cutting, always check with Broombusters first!

Whenever you go out into nature, wear sturdy shoes and bring water. Bring your own gloves to cut broom. Enjoy the beauty!

Make plans for cut broom removal before you cut!  Unfortunately, MOTI is not able to remove broom cut on the highways.  If you contact Broombusters in advance, sometimes we can help.  At the very least, we can offer advice on cut broom disposal.  To be a Broombuster, contact Broombusters first!  Cut at your own risk. Be safe and have fun!
