Working under the motto “The Future is Forested,” an alliance of conservationists planted more than 800 trees on Knouse Food properties to help keep streams cool, bountiful for organisms and free of pollutants.

Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn planted the first tree, a Red Oak, 50 yards from the former home of C.H. Musselman, founder of Musselman’s Applesauce. The building now serves as a police station and borough officer in Biglerville. The secretary’s stop in Adams County Thursday was one of many during the department’s 2021 Sustainability Tour.
