Photo of the Week: Hershey Meadows Tree Planting

"This is my family at a CBF tree planting event in Hershey Meadows, Pennsylvania, a few weekends ago. It was a great morning and even our youngest was able to plant several trees. It is nice to think such a fun family event can have an impact all the way down the watershed. We hope to attend the next planting in November."

—Glen Morrison (as told to Emmy Nicklin)

It's nice to teach children and young people to value and benefit of trees, give it to us. Planting trees can be very interesting, because people interact and spend time in the fresh air.

Raising the centre bottom of the hole slightly higher than the surrounding area. This allows water to disperse, reducing the possibility of water pooling in the planting zone.

Its a good start for kids to know how we need to take care for our nature. I think they will realized how gifted we are as we still have lots of tress.
