On October 24th and 25th, Natural Lands Trust Stewardship staff came to the Gwynedd Preserve for a reforestation project. The goal was to plant 900 mixed native hardwood trees in a three acre meadow. This planting will help control storm water run off into the creeks that boarder the meadow. These two tributaries eventually flow into the Wissahickon Creek. To prevent damage from the white tailed deer, the trees were protected with Tubex tree shelters as seen in the photos. (You can click on each photo to see a larger version.) It will take several years for the trees to get established above the reach of the deer. Thanks to all the Land Managers for their help on the Preserve. Without them, this project would have been difficult to accomplish.
