BIO 526 Tree Planting

Kevin Siler from Grounds along with Chad Carwein and Anneliese Hitcho from the Office of Sustainability worked side-by-side with one of our graduate level conservation biology classes on January 27th to plant about 30 loblolly pines in UNCG’s Peabody Park. The benefits are numerous not only to the students who participated in the tree planting and the park itself, but also to the entire campus community who enjoy the beauty and solitude of the park. The students received hands-on experience in habitat restoration and benefits for the park include stabilization of the slope, cleaner water flowing into the creek, and provision of habitat for the woodland animals.
