Eagle Scout Jonah Yates Completes Benches for Claymont Woods
Jonah Yates of Claymont Woods recently completed his Eagle Scout project by making and installing five benches in Claymont Woods: Two at the ball field, two near the base of the now-fallen Millennium Tree, and one on the trail behind the ball field. The tops of the benches are slabs from the Millennium Tree which have been sanded and coated in spar urethane varnish. A photo of Jonah and one of his benches is here.

The Millenium Tree, before its demise in 2017, was a red oak judged to be the oldest tree in Chesterfield, perhaps 300 years old. Its demise was chronicled in the West Newsmagazine and the Claymont Woods Residents Association newsletter (see page 2). (Use your browser's back button/arrow to return to this page.)
