Name of Project: Maumee Valley

Number of Trees to be Planted: 300

Directly Benefits: Residents residing near a water treatment facility

Location: Wauseon, Ohio

Year: 2011

Goals

  • Improve the aesthetic value of a water treatment facility
  • Create a windbreak
  • Provide wildlife habitat

Notable Highlights

American Forests is partnering with the Maumee Valley Resource Conservation and Development Council, The Fulton Soil and Water Conservation District, Wauseon Tree Commission, Wauseon Park Board, and the City of Wauseon Waste Water Treatment Plant to plant trees in an area adjacent to a Wauseon water treatment facility.

Windbreaks, like the one to be planted in this project, are barriers made of one or more rows of trees.  They are beneficial in both urban and rural settings, and are commonly used to prevent wind erosion, reduce noise pollution, and provide visual barriers. Windbreaks also create wildlife habitat in areas where it would not be usually found, like in between farm fields or in urban areas such as this.
