Trophy Trees Planted at Golf Course
The Black Hole Creek Watershed Association recently completed a major planting of “Trophy Trees” at the White Deer Golf Course near Montgomery.
This riparian buffer planting project, which reduces stormwater runoff and provides shade to the stream, was funded with a PA Growing Greener grant.
Volunteers and helpers from the Lycoming County Work Release Program, as well as a volunteer from Ironwood Native Plant Nursery, have been providing labor for the project.
Trees are available for a $50 donation and will be incorporated into the planting at the golf course. The following types of trees are available: Swamp White Oak, Black Gum (Tupelo), River Birch, Sycamore, Silver Maple, Sweet Gum, and Linden Tree.
The Black Hole Creek Watershed Association will provide an engraved plaque for each tree which can be donated by a sponsor or in memorial. For more information, contact association president Becky Sanguedolce (left) at 570-547-6289.
