Group Inventories Township Towering Trees

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – The almost ever-lasting splendor of large-growth trees in Lower Pottsgrove’s Ringing Rocks Park has been officially inventoried and cataloged by representatives of the Natural Lands Trust, township Manager Ed Wagner said Monday (Oct. 2, 2017). They’re expected to make a return visit soon to see what’s growing where in its Snell-Norton Park, too.

Trust workers are conducting a census of sorts of trees and other specimens growing in Montgomery County parks, Wagner explained during Monday night’s Board of Commissioners meeting. They spent about two hours Sept. 7 (Thursday) marveling over the tree stock in Ringing. “They were really impressed with our large-growth trees, and they identified a few invasive species too,” he said.

Its representatives are scheduled to return Oct. 18 to Snell-Norton for an inventory there. Problem is, Wagner added, that park consists primarily of former pasture land and meadows … and few trees. They’ll conduct an inventory anyway.

The township expects to receive a report on their findings by year’s end.
