Trees for Tributaries Program: An Opportunity to Reforest Your Streamside Areas
Do you have a stream running through your property? Streams are their best when the riparian area, or land area next to the s
tre am, is forested.
The New York State Department of Environment Conservation’s “Trees for Tributaries” Program provides landowners with native t ree s and shrubs
at no cost to reforest these streamside areas.
If the riparian area is not vegetated, or if the vegetation is of poor quality, stream stability is vulnerable. This vegetation, or riparian buffer,
provides many services in regard to stream stability, but also to terrestrial and aquatic habitat. The riparian area aids in stream stability by slowing
floodwaters as well as reducing bed and bank erosion. Both aquatic and terrestrial habitats benefit from this area too shaded streams have lower
temperatures and higher oxygen content providing for a more habitable area for invertebrates and fish. Riparian buffers filter out nutrients from
stormwater, therefore protecting waterways from nutrient pollution, and the diverse, shaded riparian area provides for a refuge and corridor for
land animals. Plus, pollinators and migratory birds are attracted to these areas!
Additionally, riparian forest buffers enhance the aesthetic and economic value of our properties, may
create privacy green screens, or create a hunting ground.
Upper Susquehanna Coalition is here to help you plan and plant your buffer through this
program. The main eligibility requirement is to have a stream on your property. Private and public
sites qualify for the program.
If you or someone you know is interested in learning more about the program, please contact
Taylor Held ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or Lydia Brinkley lbrinkley@u s c.org ) at the Upper
Susquehanna Coalition or call (607)687 3553.
This covers just what FFI is about, fishing for any type of fish. Our go-to bass fisherman is Robert Brun’s and he has signed up to help if the person wants to bring a friend no problem. I have 11 people signed up to be Fishing Buddies so far and if you wish to be a help send me an email with your name, phone number and email address.
Once spring arrives we will send a list out and it will be up to you to contact the person and arrange the details to go and have some fun fishing.
We have other programs that will be ongoing such as an email that might say, Hi if anyone wants to meet me this evening or tomorrow in Johnson City at the Park behind Home Depot, come around 6 pm. It may be a pond to fish for crappies, perch, and bass. This would be perfect for a youngster to learn fly fishing and have fun. This also could bring in new members.
Please watch your emails and do open them, we are trying, but it is up to YOU to step up and engage with your club members!
Thanks, the light in the tunnel is getting much brighter now!
