Do you own or manage land along a stream? You can apply for free native plants to help to reduce erosion and improve habitat along your stream!

The Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs Program offers free native tree and shrubs for planting along the tributary streams in the Hudson River Estuary watershed.  Our staff can help you with a planting plan and work with your volunteers.

We are now accepting applications for fall planting projects. Applications received by August 2017 will be given preference.

For more information about the program or to download please visit DEC’s website.  If you have any questions about a potential planning site, please contact Beth Roessler at (845) 256-2253 or
