Good Morning. Yesterday afternoon, about 2 or 3 dozen saplings were planted around the rim of the East Lake Park lake. I took a look at them while walking my dog this morning. 

I am all for new trees but where they were planted yesterday by folks helped by a back hoe and two Delaware County vans might be a little controversial. Almost all of the new trees are right up at the edge of the water. A cluster of six or so surround the dock. Other clusters fill in open spaces between older growth trees. A few appear to be very close to the waters edge on the narrow south edge of the lake that is a path used by people fishing that side of the lake.

Does anyone know where I can find information about the project that sponsored this effort? I am curious to see if there was a reason for where they were located. Someone earlier in the week marked the planting locations with orange flags and spray paint, so it was evident that the locations were pre-scouted.
