Treasure Lake –
Members of the Treasure Lake Sportsman’s Club recently planted 36 trees around Little Flipper Lake.
Dave Sylvis of the Sportsman’s Club said volunteers planted 26 chestnut, five apple and five pear trees the evening of April 21.
The chestnut tree population was devastated years ago, so the club has set out to reintroduce them back into Treasure Lake, a habitat advancement project for wildlife.
The TLSC has been working with the local deer population for about 15 years, Sylvis noted.
Planting these trees will ensure at least one ripe food source for the deer population, such as apples and pears.
