Chesapeake Bay Riparian #3

Year Planted: 2001

Trees Planted: 165,350
Location: Maryland

2001 was the third year that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provided free hardwood seedlings to private landowners along the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Forest riparians will provide a filtering system that will trap sediments, nutrients, herbicides, and other nonpoint source pollutants. These reforested riparian areas will also provide vital habitat for resident and migratory species within the Bay watershed. The project will provide significant habitat for neotropical migrants, amphibians, reptiles, and other wildlife and will knit together habitat gaps along streams, providing travel corridors for terrestrial wildlife. Among the species to benefit from this project are the American toad, green treefrog, sharp-skinned hawk, red-tailed hawk, eastern red bat, coyote, eastern box turtle, and fence lizard. American Forests partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to complete this project.
