EP Urban Forest Tree Walk at Hunt’s Mills


On May 18th folks joined community group EP Urban Forest and renowned arborist Matthew “Twig” Largess for a “Notable Tree Walk” through the woods at Hunt’s Mills. Guided by trail master Ernie Germani, the group learned about the importance of this urban forest, while Mr. Largess pointed out different tree species and the notable and ancient trees found along the walk. Some of these trees are likely to be 200 years old or more! Largess was enthusiastic about the ancient trees found in this forest and suggested that the city continue to protect this special place!

Everyone learned about why an urban forest is necessary to protect our quality of life by improving air quality, controlling flooding, and offering stress relief while being in the natural environment. Everyone was inspired by this notable tree walk!
