Recently, the UP Environmental Commission, in conjunction with the Penn State Master Watershed Stewards, re-planted a riparian buffer and planted trees in Scotts Park. Over 100 trees, staked out with deer protectors, were planted. These understory trees will help mitigate future erosion and help support the local wildlife and promote a healthy watershed. We were there to contribute!
The trees were generously provided by the Commonwealth via its Ten Million Tree Initiative. The EC also has occasional access to bare root saplings for township residents at no cost; persons interested should reach out.
