Seneca Creek State Park #2

Year Planted: 2001

Trees Planted: 10,164
Location: Maryland

This project took place in Seneca Creek State Park in an area that was previously grazed. Planting trees in this area will protect several springs and a first order stream and will restore a forested wetland. Locating the trees near riparian areas will reduce stormwater runoff, filter out nutrients harmful to Chesapeake Bay, expand wildlife habitat, and reduce forest fragmentation that threatens larger-ranging species. This project also adds to the existing block of contiguous forest land owned by Maryland. American Forests partnered with the Maryland DNR and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to make this project possible.
