Sturbridge Community Tree Project
This past spring, Master Gardener Crystal Lecuyer invested 35 hours in a community project protecting the banks of a stream that feeds the Neshaminy Creek by organizing 65 people to plant 40 trees. The stream has no name but flows through one acre of open space in Langhorne. Crystal obtained the bare-root trees through the Philadelphia Horticultural Society. The team planted Pin oak (Quercus palustris), Kentucky coffee tree (Gymnocladus dioicus), Swamp white oak (Quercus bicolor), Jeffsred Freeman maple (Acer freemanii ‘Autumn Blaze’), Armstrong Freeman maple (Acer freemanii 'Armstrong') and Sugar hackberry (Celtis laeigata).
