Learn To Plant Bare Root Tree Saplings

Then You Track Your Trees For Clean Water

We are partnering with the Virginia Department of Forestry (DOF) to track and report as many trees planted voluntarily in the Rappahannock River Watershed as possible. This data helps decision makers know the progress we are all making towards meeting our regional pollution reduction goals. Once you input your trees into the DOF module, a trained volunteer from Friends of the Rappahannock, Virginia Master Naturalists, Virginia Tree Stewards, Certified Arborist, DOF, or other partner organization will contact you to briefly inspect the tree planting to verify it was planted correctly and can count it towards our pollution reduction goals.

Follow the link below, click on the “ADD YOUR TREES” tab, and enter your data in from there. If you have any questions you can email our staff at

Once we inspect and report the trees to DOF, we can track our progress on this interactive map. We have a goal of 50,000 trees planted in 2020 to protect clean water and we need your help to reach our goal! 

The Rappahannock River Watershed Roundtable is working together to improve water quality across the region. Many partners team up together to leverage resources and plant trees. These programs are made possible thanks to the leadership, generous grants, donations, and cost-share programs from these great partners. For specific projects or giveaway events led by our partners, please check our events or Facebook page for ways to get involved.
