Beyond the Ashes

Public Works staff has a plan, to formalize that plan we recently received a 2020 Urban and Community Forestry Assistance Grant to help create an Urban Forest Management Plan as well as a cost-share grant aimed at helping purchase additional trees to replace ones that have been lost.

Virginia Trees for Clean Water, Purcell Park Plantings

Project Date: Spring 2018

Partners: City of Harrisonburg, Virginia Department of Forestry

Funding: Grant funding from the Virginia Trees for Clean Water Grant

30 trees were planted next to Purcell Park Pond, along Blacks Run. The trees extend the riparian buffer area and provide added filtration of stormwater and provide positive impacts to the water quality in the stream.
