Two-step application process
If you meet the criteria at lower right, there is a simple two-step application process:
Once application is accepted, a staff member will contact you to set up a site visit to see the land, analyze the site and discuss your priorities. A buffer design plan will be created and you will have the opportunity to review before installation. Planting occurs during February-April and November-December. Some locations may need site preparation before planting can occur. We will evaluate the buffer for the first three years and provide maintenance, as needed, to help establish a healthy streamside forest.
NEW!! Starting in January 2021, we will be accepting applications for properties in the Upper James Watershed.
