Urban tree canopy grant given to county as part of water quality strategy - Jefferson County, WV

Tree planting grant given to county - journal-news.net | News, sports, jobs, community information for Martinsburg - The Journal:
The Jefferson County Commission, in partnership with the cities of Ranson and Charles Town, has been awarded a $22,600 Chesapeake Bay Enhancement Grant by the West Virginia Division of Forestry.

This grant will build on an effort initiated in 2009 in which Jefferson County, with the assistance of the West Virginia Potomac Tributary Strategy Implementation Team, began an Urban Tree Canopy assessment project. The county, in its effort to foster wider acceptance of voluntary best management practices (BMPs) for urban tree conservation and plantings, first developed an UTC assessment to determine the extent and location of tree canopy throughout the county.
