SHIPPENSBURG – The Eichelberger farm is working together with Shippensburg University to plant hundreds of stream-side trees in the hopes of improving the local water shed.

The newly planted trees will be used to provide oxygen, absorb up to one ton of carbon dioxide per year, and will remove other pollutants from the surrounding farms.

The project is part of a two-million tree planting campaign and is sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. The project has planted over 500 trees in the past month, and aims to plant over 10 thousand trees in the local area.
