Free Trees for Streamside Planting

February 18, 2015

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 create a planting plan and work with your volunteers on-site during planting.

Trees for Tribs is now accepting applications for Spring 2015 planting projects. Watershed groups, land trusts, and other environmental organizations are encourage to apply. Applications received by March 1, 2015 will be given preference.

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.

For more information about the program including project guidelines and applications, 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.
