Plant a Tree

by James River Association

The James River Association and the Virginia Department of Forestry are working with landowners across the middle James watershed to restore or create forest buffers that improve the quality of local waterways through our James River Buffers program.

Streamside forests are incredibly important to our waterways, they slow flood water, improve water quality by filtering runoff from upland land use, provide canopy cover to shade and cool the stream, provide habitat for a variety of birds and small mammals, and are a great place for recreational activities such as fishing, hiking, and bird watching. 

The James River Association has a goal to plant 72,600 trees in the next three years, and your support can help us reach our goal!
