How did Anna's Way get its name?

"Anna Donoway, who went to work for Dad at 18 years of age, was the accountant for Tunnell and Tunnell (later Tunnell and Raysor). She came to my office and said she wanted to retire from Tunnell and Raysor and go to Long Neck full-time to work as the accountant for Pot-Nets (Tunnell Companies). I told her that we didn't need a full-time administrator, accountant and office manager. She insisted that she was going to work 40 hours a week. As it turned out, there was 40 hours of work for her to do. As of this writing, she has announced that she will retire on her 50th work anniversary for the Tunnell family; Dad, myself and Rob, 3 generations. She is a highly competent and thorough individual. Hence, Anna's Way!"

(Mrs.Donoway passed away at 49 1/2 years with the Tunnell Family.)

A lot of people see a dead or dying tree and see something that should be removed from the landscape immediately.  I am one of those people, except on occasion where that tree is growing in an area that allows it to provide longer lasting benefits for wildlife habitat.  Trees located in woods, forests, buffer strips or wetlands are all ideal candidates to become a snag or sometimes called a wildlife tree.  A snag is s a dead or dying tree that can support more life than a living tree!  It is true.  It really does not vary species to species, dead trees provide benefits. Some species have stronger deadwood though, like our native Eastern Redcedar, Juniperus virginiana.

Obviously, this happens all the time in nature, but in or on managed land, the term for a dead or dying tree that is left to stand is called a snag.  If a snag was left to stand and it eventually fails and falls to the ground, or larger parts of a dead tree are removed and placed on the ground, they are called logs.  If a standing dead or dying tree has a target (people or property that could be injured/damaged), sometimes it is necessary to remove a part or all of the standing tree.  That is why you might see dead trees standing that look like poles that have been cut to 10’, 20’, 30’ or however tall, it is taking a particular target out of play.

Benefits of leaving these snags or logs are many, such as providing a place to live for birds, bats, squirrels, and raccoons.  They provide a food source by attracting insects, lichens, and fungi.  You will often see larger hunting birds perched in or on top of these trees looking for food.  They provide hiding places for all sorts of insects and reptiles as well as breaking down and returning vital nutrients to the soil.


"I love Pot-Nets, it is very quiet, very peaceful, to watch the animal life in the marsh is very relaxing. Far away from the noise and congestion of other places. If there would be a complaint, it might be mosquitos if you are by the marsh, but at least they too are quiet!"

- BP, Pot-Nets Resident


“I have two sons who work for Pot Nets (one of which was doing fencing today) and yes, they do a great job and work incredibly hard. Tunnell is a great man/company to work for. Great people! They take care of their own like I've never seen before!”

- Laura, Pot-Nets Resident
