Shoreline Forest Buffer

Shoreline forest buffers are important for healthy streams and rivers. Forest buffers along streams and shorelines filter pollutants to improve water quality.

An Ecosystem is a community of living and non-living things that are dependent on each other. Elements of this ecosystem include the aquatic wetland plants, and the forest buffer trees and shrubs planted along the shoreline. How many elements of the shoreline ecosystem can you find?

Back River watershed has 73 miles of streams located in Baltimore County and Baltimore City. The watershed includes the stream systems of Herring Run, Stemmers Run, Red House Run, Briens Run, and Bread and Cheese Creek. All of the streams in the watershed drain to the tidal portion of Back River. The watershed includes the communities of Stoneleigh, Parkville, Overlea, Hamilton, Belair-Edison, Frankfort, Rosedale, and Essex.

This forest buffer is planted with trees and shrubs that are native to the Mid-Atlantic region. These native plants provide essential water quality benefits by trapping and filtering sediments, nutrients, and chemicals from the surface runoff. Native plants also provide habitat for animals on land and in the water.
