Wissahickon Valley Park Sustainable Trails Initiative | Philadelphia, PA

This trail side restoration initiative for a popular urban woodland park faced factors that derail most restoration projects, including invasive vegetation, a long history of site disturbance, significant deer browse, and intensive public use. Yet with strategic initial stabilization measures, the right plant associations, and effective long-term management procedures, the trail side plant communities specified by LWLA have thrived and achieved project objectives within just two years.
