More tree removal at Manassas Battlefield

The National Park Service plans to remove more trees at Manassas National Battlefield Park.

They’re altering the current landscape to make it more consistent with field/forest patterns in the 1860’s, in preparation for the 150th anniversaries of the First and Second Battles of Manassas in 2011/2012.   This time, the trees to be removed are along the “unfinished railroad,” focus of intense fighting on August 30, 1862.

To learn more, attend the open house on May 13, 4:00-7:00pm at the Stuart’s Hill Center (Pageland Lane and Route 29).

    If they are going to remove all those trees for the sake of accuracy they should also add a lot of native birds. The abundance of bird life then would be startling to anyone from this time in the early 21st century.
