News: Tree Planting Completed

Pin It

Exciting news at the Goldenseal Sanctuary, riparian restoration has begun with the planting of 5,232 seedlings consisting of 1,000 Sugar Maples, 1,000 Black Walnut, 1,000 Red Oak, 940 Persimmon, 400 Black Cherry, 367 Sweet Gum, 175 Red Osier Dogwood, 175 Red Bud, and 175 Sassafras.

Tree planting was done by Williams Forestry and Associates as noted in photos below. Amazingly, this team of tree planters arrived in the morning and quickly set up the marking flags for the tree planting, trimmed the roots and dipped the trees to prepare them for planting. They then took off into the fields with their mattocks and put the wips into the ground. By 4 p.m. that same day they were finished.

This project was overseen by Megis Soil and Water Conservation District. Funds for the project were set aside due to a catastrophic mine flooding that took place in July of 1993, this tree planting project is part of a larger mission to restore the Leading Creek Watershed.
