The Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs Program offers free native trees and shrubs for planting along the tributary streams in the Hudson River Estuary watershed. We are looking for new sites for plantings. Our staff can help you with a planting plan and work with your volunteers on site.
Trees for Tribs is now accepting applications for Spring 2015 planting projects. Applications received by March 1, 2015 will be given preference.
For more information about the program including project applications and fact sheets, please visit the DEC website,www.dec.ny.gov/lands/43668.html or contact the Hudson River Estuary Program's Stream Buffer Coordinator, Beth Roessler at (845) 256-2253, or HudsonEstuaryTFT@dec.ny.gov .
Since 2007, Trees for Tribs has been responsible for planting more than 36,000 native trees and shrubs along 17 miles of stream with the help of over 7,500 local volunteers. These plants will help protect water quality, fish and wildlife and also reduce erosion and flooding.
Please forward this email to potentially interested landowners and partners.
