It’s fairly common to think that all plants growing are good, but taking a closer look you may find intruders within your native forest. Non-native plants are unfortunately becoming commonplace for most landscapes and without management can wreak havoc on our natural landscapes and ecosystems.
Do you want to grow forests for clean water?!
The James River Association (JRA) and the Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF) are here to help landowners across the Middle James watershed to restore forest buffers along local waterways. A forest buffer is an area of trees and shrubs between a stream and open land that filters soil, nutrients, and pollution before they reach the stream.
