Mill Creek(Levittown, PA)- Tree Planting to Lessen Stormwater

Project:


Along Black Ditch, a tributary of Mill Creek in Levittown, Bristol Township PA we are installing a riparian buffer to help lessen storm water. We will be removing invasive shrubs then planting native trees and native berrying shrubs to spread the good native plants by feeding birds on this 3 acre county property.

With the help of Penn State Master Watershed Stewards, we treated an acre of knotweed with herbicide to enable native reforestation in the coming years.

Native Shrubs 

Bristol Township donated 8 hours of Heavy Machinery and and 2 dumpsters for Knotweed Removal.

We sawed the knotweed and shoveled out the huge Knotweed shrub bases.

Native Speckled Alder along the creek. (Medicinal tree - you can chew on the bark and it is like Tylenol)

We moved some nice boulders so you can sit on them along the creek.
