I went to the Wissahickon on April 9th, 2011 and planted trees with the Wissahickon Restoration Volunteers and students from the University of Pennsylvania. There were 35 trees that needed to be planted. There were flags marking where the trees were to be planted. Our group picked the spot where we would plant our first tree. We had to do a little invasive plant removal to clear away three feet around where the tree would be planted. Most of it had been removed already and the dead vines of the plants were everywhere. We also had to dig up the root of the invasive plant that was in the spot where the tree would go. Once the invasive was removed and the hole was dug. We planted the tree.
The first tree we planted was a Hackberry Tree. The Hackberry Tree produces berries and it’s a good food and shelter tree for wildlife. The second tree we planted was a White Oak Tree. The White Oak is going to grow big and also provide shelter and food for wildlife. After we planted the trees we then watered them and put a white plastic covering around them to protect them from deer. This was my first time volunteering with the WRV and it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend this organization and service to anyone. The staff was really welcoming and helpful. I enjoyed being out in the woods and even though we were working, it didn’t really feel like work. It was just a really fun experience. Please check out their website and calendar for volunteering opportunities. http://wissahickonrestorationvolunteers.org/
