Gravel Bed update…

 

On April 8, Tree Stewards planted 101 native tree seedlings in the new gravel beds that were built last fall with a grant from Virginia Department Of Forestry.  The gravel beds are “demonstration” gravel beds—we are documenting the steps so we’ll be able to share what we learn in this process.  We plan to plant these young trees on Belle Isle after they develop a vigorous root system in the gravel bed over the spring and summer.

             

Stay tuned for more gravel bed updates!
