New York state has $525,000 in grants available for tree-planting projects.
The Trees for Tributaries Program is designed to support streamside tree- or shrub-planting projects. The goal of the state Department of Environmental Conservation program is to improve wildlife habitats, water quality and storm resiliency.
Grants from $11,000 to $100,000 are to be distributed to municipalities, academic institutions and not-for-profits.
Applications are due Sept. 7.
