@SUBHEDForestry project helps Boy Scout reach Eagle

Boy Scout Tim Richards of Troop 460 of Mount Airy recently completed his Eagle Scout community service project.

Tim selected a section of Wildwood Park on Ridge Avenue to create a forest understory -- different layers of plants, trees and bushes that show what a replenished forest would look like.

Troop members added new topsoil, native ground covers, woody shrubs, and small trees and hardwoods to mix with the existing full-grown trees in the park.

Scout mothers also planted chrysanthemums in the area. Tim plans to build a sign explaining the project to visitors.

Two days after the project was completed, the group found that the site had been vandalized. Shrubs and flowers had been pulled out of the ground and tree branches broken off. The group repaired what they could and have been watching the area since, said Debbie Richards, Tim's mother.
