Forestry Club Completes Civic Project for Nearby Golf Course

Trees are ground into mulch at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center.

In a mutually beneficial service project, the Penn College Forestry Club removed approximately 45 trees from the White Deer Golf Course entrance and hauled them across Allenwood Camp Lane to the college’s Schneebeli Earth Science Center.  The trees were stacked in a pile for summer storage at the campus – home to many of the majors in the School of Transportation & Natural Resources Technologies – then, last month, the Lycoming County Landfill sent over its tub grinder for chipping and grinding of the material. The mulch will be used on the ESC’s trail system and for various recreational projects throughout the academic year.
