 NORFOLK SOUTHERN COMPLETES PLANTING OF 42,000 TREES AT
 ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, VIRGINIA PLANNED COAL GROUND STORAGE FACILITY
 NORFOLK, Va., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Norfolk Southern (NYSE: NSC) has completed the planting of about 42,000 trees which will serve as a buffer and wildlife habitat at the site of the company's planned coal ground storage facility in Isle of Wight County, Va.
 "Over 22 different species of trees have been selected and arranged to maximize the visual buffer and wildlife habitat opportunities afforded by the large cleared fields near the intersection of state routes 608 and 635," said W.J. (Jack) Whitney Jr., vice president of Talbot & Associates, environmental consultants for the Isle of Wight project. "The plan utilizes tree varieties which are fast growing and known to provide excellent habitat, cover and food supply for wildlife native to the area."
 Whitney said the Virginia Department of Forestry was consulted early in the design phase of the project, and assisted Norfolk Southern in the actual planting of trees. He said the Department will monitor tree growth and provide ongoing advice "to assure a successful reforestation."
