Farmers, landowners use plants to improve water quality

MIDDLEBURY FARMER HANK Dimuzio and volunteers from a variety of Vermont organizations plant trees along Muddy Branch, a tributary of the New Haven River that runs through Dimuzio’s farm on Munger Street. The trees are expected to reap benefits for the watershed and help prevent the growth of invasive species along the stream.  Photo courtesy of Vermont Land Trust
