Forested lands throughout the watershed protect water quality. Therefore, WAPOA plans to sponsor this tree-planting campaign every spring. It is WAPOA's goal to do everything it can to protect lakes. WAPOA believes that encouraging property owners to plant these trees completes one step of the many needed to ensure lakes are protected and remain healthy for many generations.
