Scout Troop 60 Helps On-Site Tree Conservation Effort

Eight scouts from Troop 60 joined on-site crews to learn about tree conservation, relocation, and to earn service hours towards their rank advancement. Scouts learned about techniques to ensure maximum survivability of relocated trees including how to judge root size and protection of the tree in transit. Check out the photos of their hard work digging the new location for the tree as well as the final tree in place.

Established in 1965, Troop 60 is located in New Delhi, India. Troop 60 is a part of the Boy Scouts of America, under Far East Council, and is chartered by the American Embassy School in New Delhi, India.
