We planted 500 trees on Saturday! Thanks to everyone that helped plant trees at Glen Leven! We added canopy trees including sycamore, southern red oak, sweetgum, and the state tree of Tennessee tulip poplar. We look forward to seeing the benefits of the trees at this site. The importance of trees in a healthy riparian zone will be seen as they provide stream bank stabilization, shade, and a source of food and habitat for aquatic wildlife. Thanks to the Land Trust of Tennessee for partnering with us and The Tennessee Department of forestry in making this restoration possible!
