Tree plantingHARRISBURG - The Governor signed legislation on November 7, 2019 to create the Keystone Tree Restricted Account to be used to fund a tree planting program and a riparian forest buffer grant program.

This legislation allows individuals to make a $3 contribution to the Keystone Tree Restricted Account when electronically renewing a driver's license, ID card, or vehicle registration through PennDOT's website (Act 78 of 2019). The Fund can also receive donations from the general public and other government entities.

The program will be administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR). DCNR will use the Fund to make grants to community groups and watershed associations for tree plantings and the establishment of stream-side wooded areas.
