Applications accepted on a rolling basis for woody buffer plantings in 2022.  WUV’s DEC Woody Buffer Block Grant site specific applications. We realize that opportunities for woody buffer plantings sometimes emerge later in the season as watershed groups are working through details with landowners, tree nurseries and crews. WUV will accept woody buffer applications on a rolling basis for plantings for spring and fall 2022. This Woody Buffer Block Grant from the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation is for WUV to subgrant funds to watershed groups to plant woody riparian buffers to improve water quality.

The slides and Q&A from the Webinar held on January 19th are there as well. Completed applications must be submitted through email to Lyn ( and Christian (
