On January 19, the City of Greenbelt Public Works in partnership with CHEARS celebrated MLK Day of Service by hosting a Tree Protection Workday in Buddy Attick Park. Volunteers protected slow-growth trees from beaver herbivory by placing protective wire caging around the base of trees. Also, volunteers manually removed English ivy to restore the woods at Buddy Attick Park. We could not have done it without Brian Townsend, City of Greenbelt Horticulturalist, for demonstrating the proper techniques and supplying us with materials. A total of about 70 trees were caged and over 100 trees were cleared of English ivy (where volunteers could reach). Thanks to all of the volunteers who served with us! We accomplished a lot with you!
