Reforestation Program – Oyster Creek Greenbelt & The Nature Preserve Initiative

In November 2016, the Parks Committee and the Board of Directors approved a new program that allows residents living adjacent to the Oyster Creek Greenbelt and the Nature Preserve a mechanism to install new trees in these District common areas. At the request of the residents living adjacent to these areas and the recreational users of these common areas, the Parks Committee developed a program whereas residents can pay for the purchase and installation of a native tree in a location mutually agreeable to the resident and the District.

The purpose of the Reforestation Program is:

  • To provide individual residents the opportunity to install a tree behind their home
  • To promote the installation of new native trees along the greenbelt to ensure a native population of varying maturity
  • To educate the community regarding the positive environmental impacts of reforestation
  • To preserve property values
  • To enhance the quality of life for recreational users of the OCG and the Nature Preserve
  • To maintain or enhance wildlife habitat
  • To sequester carbon dioxide

The program’s success will be monitored and it may be expanded in the future. To review the Reforestation Program in its entirety you may follow this link to the District’s website:
