Urban Forestry Planting in Roycroft Park

Urban forestry will be planting a variety of native trees and shrubs in a wooded section of Roycroft Park near the entrance off Boulton Drive.  This planting will follow the removal of several large invasive trees that took place earlier this fall, and is intended to be the next phase in a gradual replacement of undesirable non-native trees with more appropriate mix of native trees and shrubs.



Installation of Post and Paddle fencing is being proposed to closely follow the planting in this section of ravine, and will serve to protect young plants as they become established, while providing delineation to the natural area long term.  Fencing style will be chosen to match that which is already present onsite.


A planting plan for this project can be found here.
