The Implementation Programs focuse on implementing practices on the ground. There are three programs available:
Best Management Practice (BMP) Program
Landowners, consulting foresters, local ordinances and stream crossing permits often require loggers to protect water quality. The BMP Program provides money, materials and technical support to help loggers plan and apply water quality Best Management Practices in the New York City Watershed.
Management Assistance Program (MAP)
The Management Assistance Program (MAP) is an incentive program providing financial assistance and technical support to landowners who wish to conduct certain stewardship activities. New York City Watershed landowners who complete a watershed forest management plan and have identified these practices as desired outcomes in their planning are eligible.
Croton Trees For Tribs (T4T)
Croton Trees for Tribs offers free trees and shrubs for planting along streams to eligible landowners in the Croton Watershed. A voluntary, community-based program, Trees for Tribs encourages applicants to identify volunteers ahead of time to help complete their planting project.
