On Saturday, September 27, our Giant Sycamore will be one of the National Public Lands Day projects. During the morning of the 27th, we’ll be moving the picnic tables, the sign board, and the hitching rails further from the tree base to allow the soil under the tree to recover to its natural state. We’ll also be spreading bark mulch under the tree to speed up the soil’s recuperation.

For this project, we’ll have permission from the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) to use their construction road to drive our vehicles down to Wilson Creek and park there. So instead of an 8-mile hike to reach the tree, it will now be only a short ¼ mile walk.
If you would like to participate in this project, please contact Duke Monson at duke.fhollow@earthlink.net or 214-422-2929 with the number of adults who will be coming, and if you can provide any of the following tools:

  • Shovel
  • Rake
  • Metal-tined pitchfork

If you can come, you’ll need water, bug-spray, long pants, long-sleeves, gloves, and a bag-lunch. We’ll start at 830am and hopefully be finished by noon. Duke will provide directions to the construction road entrance as you RSVP.

TTPA will bring chainsaws and some hand tools.
