Hamlet Crest Park Gets 65 More Trees

IMG_5300

Phase 2 of the Hamlet Crest Park reforestation project resulted in the planting of 65 new tree and shrub seedlings on November 4. Phase 1, which achieved the installation of 120 trees and shrubs, occurred on Arbor Day, and the final phase will occur in the spring.

More than 20 volunteers, many of them Henderson High School students, planted a variety of viburnum shrubs and Washington hawthorn, pin oak, shagbark hickory, swamp white oak, and sweet gum trees over the course of three hours. The layout, developed by Sustainability Advisory Committee member Barbara Rinehart, reflects the Miyawaki method, a reforestation technique for cultivating fast-growing groves of native plants, using dense, mixed planting to simulate a natural forest.
