Crow’s Nest Volunteer Tree Planting
We had a successful morning planting trees at the preserve. While the number (80) is not in itself remarkable, the logistics of planting at three remote sites spread over a mile and not accessible by vehicle made for a challenging day.
Volunteers carried in by hand the trees and tools as well as tree protection tubes and the stakes to hold them up.
We planted gaps along both sides of French Creek, an area near the Chief's Grove where we had earlier cleared invasive multiflora rose, and filled gaps in a hedgerow.
I am grateful to the twelve volunteers who made this possible: Stan, Isaac, Luke, Bob, Chad, Marvin, Aidan, Chris, Dave, Brian, George, and my wife Denise. I couldn't have done it without you!
I should mention that several of these volunteers have been coming out for our spring cleanups for more than a decade. That's a remarkable service. Thank you.
