TLC Celebrates Arbor Day

TLC was out on at Stateline Woods Preserve today celebrating Arbor Day with volunteers from ING.  We planted a mixture of trees along our border to create a nice hedge that will grow to provide habitat for many bird species that prefer hedgerows.  

The trees that were planted today were a mixture of canopy, sub-canopy, and understory trees.  A few of the species that were planted were:  Betula lenta (Sweet Birch), Celtis Occidentalis (Hackberry), Nyssa sylvatica (Black Gum), Quercus coccinea (Scarlet Oak), and a few other oak species.   I hope you stop by Stateline Woods over the weekend to see our newest planting area.
 

Thanks again to all of our volunteers from ING for their help today!
