Frankford Middle School Students Plant Trees on School Grounds

Tuesday, November 08, 2022



53 seventh grade students at Frankford Middle School worked with the WRWMG to plant 75 native trees and shrubs along a Paulins Kill River tributary that flows through their school grounds. The students came out during their science classes and each had a chance to properly plant and protect a tree within the reed canarygrass-invaded floodplain. Reed canarygrass is an invasive species that grows so densely along streams that it chokes out and prevents native vegetation from naturally growing on its own. Planting trees within reed canarygrass areas helps to shade out and suppress the invasive reed canarygrass over time.
