Eagle Scout News and Projects
Carter Johnstone's Eagle Project

My project will take place in the Houston Arboretum, and entails collecting brush over a portion of the arboretum's forest, mulching this brush, and then returning this mulch back to the forest floor.  After the drought of 2011 around 301 million trees died across the state of Texas.  The Houston Arboretum suffered from the drought and much of its plant life died which created thick brush that still remains today.  The project will speed up the natural succession and make the arboretum less susceptible to fire,  reduce the amount of pests, and help restore the natural beauty of the arboretum.

            The estimated cost for completing this project is $550. The biggest expense will be renting a wood chipper to turn the brush into mulch.  The rest of the money will go towards other equipment and food.  

       I joined boy scouts early high school and it has provided me with life long memories. Please help me continue my journey.
