TreeVitalize Watersheds Grant Program 2017 - Round Open

Since 2005, TreeVitalize Watersheds, led by the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) in the five-county southeastern PA (SE PA) region, has focused on tree planting along stream corridors, wetlands, adjacent upland areas, headwaters, and “naturalized” stormwater basins. Through this program, dozens of such watershed restoration projects are conducted throughout the region every year, resulting in thousands of trees planted in those sensitive water protection zones. The program receives funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and corporate sponsor Aqua PA, as well as substantial in-kind contributions from various partners.
