Fish Grow ON TREES!

Some of Vermont’s most productive and beautiful streams are lined by forest.

Leaves that fall into the water feed bugs that are eaten by fish.
Trees shade the water and keep it cool for fish.
Trees that fall into the water provide habitat for fish.
Trees and shrubs slow the flow of water, which can reduce risks during floods, and filter runoff to keep streams, rivers, and lakes clean.

What you can do?

Maintain at least 100 feet of forest along streams, rivers, and lakes.
Plant trees along streams and rivers to jump-start forest restoration.
