Shrubs Planted as Shoreline Buffer
The Lake George Association joined several partners to plant dozens of native plants and shrubs along English Brook near its mouth at Lake George. The buffer is designed to help to protect the stream, and ultimately the lake.

With funding from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Trees for Tribs program additional association was able to add 120 native plants and shrubs, including arrowwood, red twig dogwood, red oak, high bush cranberry, eastern hemlock and more.

The Lake George Association recommends homeowners crate and maintain natural vegetative buffers near the lake shore and along streams as opposed to clean cutting the land and installing a lawn. Buffers provide food and shelter for local wildlife, stabilize soil, reduce erosion, filter pollutants in sediment, and absorb nutrients.
