When the goal is to plant 150,000 trees over 250 acres in a reforestation effort on an old strip mine, it can seem daunting for any one person to try. "But acting together as a group, like the passengers did on Flight 93, we can accomplish a lot," Joe Pizarchik, director of the U.S. Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, told about 150 volunteers gathered Saturday morning in a field in the midst of the Flight 93 National Memorial in Stonycreek Township, Somerset County.
Wearing light green T-shirts that read "PLANT A TREE AT FLIGHT 93," the volunteers were there to begin the arduous process of reforesting part of what used to be a strip mine and now is largely a meadow with native species like white pine, quaking aspen and American chestnut trees. They worked on a hillside about 400 yards from where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into the ground on Sept. 11, 2001, killing all 40 crew and passengers as they battled terrorists for control of the airplane.
The trees they planted will eventually form "our version of an eternal flame," Mike Lester, assistant state forester for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, told the volunteers.

Like many other lines crisscrossing the state's Marcellus Shale regions, this pipe was big - a high-pressure steel line, 20 inches in diameter, large enough to help move a buried ocean of natural gas out of this corner of the state. It was also plenty big enough to set off a sizable explosion if something went wrong.
