Partner event: CREP Tree Planting & Maintenance Workshop

  • Fox Haven Organic Farm 2825 Poffenberger Rd Middletown, MD

The Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) is a federal and state supported cost-share program that financially assists landowners to plant trees that protect sensitive soils, waters, and wetlands while enhancing wildlife areas.  If you are a farmer, rancher, or agricultural land owner you may be eligible for funding.

Plant trees and warm season grasses at Fox Haven Organic Farm and enjoy a Q and A with professionals and CREP landowners about their experience and challenges with CREP, covering all aspects, from the application process to planting and maintaining the trees, shrubs and warm season grasses, to contract renewals.

Learn new skills such as where to plant and how to prepare your land for tree planting, installing the stakes and tubes, and required maintenance.

The workshop is open to all, but is most applicable to current CREP participants, those interested in CREP or in starting medium-to-large scale tree plantings on their property.
