Eagle Scout project replaces trees in Mocksville

Three Rivers Land Trust will work with Phillip Icard, assistant Venture Patrol Leader with Troop 10, on a reforestation Eagle Scout project that will take place on Saturday. The goal of this Eagle Scout Project is to plant 1,500 trees on a conserved property owned by Three Rivers Land Trust.

The trees that will be planted for Icard’s Eagle Scout project are a mix of species including crabapple and various hardwoods, such as mockernut hickory, swamp chestnut and willow oak. This planting will benefit future generations by helping with soil and water conservation in the area. The planting will be held at 1515 Point Road, Mocksville, NC 27028.

Icard and other volunteers have spent many hours already for planning and organizing, and many volunteers are expected to turn out to help with this large reforestation project.

“This is a very large-scale Eagle Project that will greatly benefit the environmental health of the community, says Icard. “It is exciting to see young people that are actively taking a part in saving the environment, and I am happy to be leading this important restoration project.”

To assist with this tree planting, there is still space available in the afternoon session. Click on the link below to sign up or contact Phillip at phyrlyt@gmail.com or The Land Trust at 704-647-0302. This event will start at 9 a.m. and is rain or shine.
