Trees for Streams is a state-wide program funded by an Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) Ecosystem Restoration Program (ERP) grant through the Vermont Association of Conservation Districts. Trees for Streams and Pur Project (private funding source) are specifically used for planting trees and shrubs along streams as riparian buffers. Planting a stream buffer improves flood resiliency, wildlife habitat, water quality and aquatic habitats at the planting site and throughout the entire watershed. They also reduce erosion, nutrient losses, and carbon in the atmosphere. If you have a stream or river on your property that needs some additional trees, please reach out to the conservation district to see if you are property qualifies!
