Tree Army Restoration Project

Year Planted: 2010

Trees Planted: 3,050
Location: Virginia

Extensive forested areas of First Landings State Park have been damaged over the years by people creating and frequenting unofficial trails. This leads to vegetation being destroyed and unable to properly grow back. This project will start off by permanently closing all of the unauthorized trails, and then re-establishing trees and other vegetation in these areas. The closing of unauthorized trails will immediately correct erosion problems and prevent further natural resource damage, and 3,000 saplings will be planted to cover them up. Over time, the demolishing of unauthorized trails will lead to an increase of native plants in the restored area, creating new habitat for wildlife, including rare species, and increasing biodiversity in the area.
