Replanting the Streams of the Hudson Valley

Do you own or manage land along a stream?

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 2016 planting projects. Applications received by March 1, 2016 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 40,000 native trees and shrubs along 18 miles of stream with the help of over 7,500 local volunteers.

Please forward this email to potentially interested landowners and partners.
