Community Organizations Plant Trees for Ongoing Campus Reforestation Project

Tree planting continued on campus in November as part of the College’s new sustainability project to plant 10,000 trees over the next ten years. More than 335 trees have begun to take root just in the last month thanks to the work of students, faculty, staff. Our latest planting, on November 15, included help from members of the Cobleskill Rescue Squad, the Cobleskill Rotary Club, and teachers and students from the SUNY Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center.

The planting effort aims to restore native upland and lowland forests that have increased water-holding capacity, filter poor-quality water, and are less prone to erosion around the Cobleskill Creek. These forests will support biodiversity, enhance wildlife habitat, and increase corridor connectivity for species that have declined due to habitat loss.

The project is supported by the Laura Jane Musser Fund, which awarded an Environmental Initiative Grant of $29,200 to the College in support of the Cobleskill Creek Riparian Forest Trail.
