1236 Native Trees and Shrubs were planted in Neshaminy State Park from 2020-2022 by Excel Events on the river trail

400 volunteers helped reforest 2.25 acres in Neshaminy State Park, PA. Just north of Philadelphia.
We removed invasive mile a minute then reforested this area back into native habitat. There are still opportunities to volunteer to help out. Tend the already planted 2100 trees and shrubs in cages and tubex. Come volunteer in Neshaminy State park for this Riparian Buffer project. This project helped lessen storm water in a priority flood zone grant funded through TreeVitalize and Keystone 10 Million Trees.

Mission Statement

Excel Events aims to provide things for the community to do and help the environment. We plant trees to lessen storm water. We remove invasive plants and reforest with native Trees and Shrubs. We do clean ups in the community. We give people something to do, whether it be providing them a place to ride their ATVs or shoot their bow at a free Olympic Archery Range at their local park to inspire a competitive passion for something. We are a Keystone 10 million trees partner. If you have a place to plant 50 trees or more, they are willing to supply trees and deer protection for free and Excel Events can also help plant those trees.
