Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs: Apply Now for Spring Planting

A young woman wearing garden gloves plants a tree.Do you own or manage land along a stream? You can now apply to one of these two programs to receive free native plants to help reduce erosion and improve habitat along your stream.

Buffer in a Bag

Anyone who owns or manages at least 50 feet of land along a stream in New York is eligible to apply for a free bag of bare-root tree or shrub seedlings from DEC's Trees for Tribs Buffer in a Bag program. You will receive a bag of native plants in the mail. We are accepting applications through mid-February.

Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs

For larger projects along the tributary streams in the Hudson River Estuary watershed that will use more than 60 plants, you can receive free native bare-root seedlings through the Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs program. Our staff can help you with a planting plan and work with your volunteers.

Watch Trees for Tribs on DEC YouTube to see how the program works for landowners and land managers.

Applicants must complete an application, and if the project is selected, recruit volunteers for planting, and maintain the site after the planting is complete. The application deadline is March 1 for a spring planting. For more information about the program or to download an application, please visit DEC's Hudson Estuary Trees for Tribs website.
