    Water quality functions of riparian forest buffer systems in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Environmental Management. — • Mayer, P. M., S. K. Reynolds, Jr., M. D. McCutchen, and T. J. Canfield. The floor of the riparian forest buffer soaks up the water and makes pollutants contained in it available for processing into. One such region where LC/LU changes are said to have affected regional water quality is the Chesapeake Bay watershed (Fig. 1a).The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States (US); its watershed (, km 2) encompasses portions of six states: New York (NY), Pennsylvania (PA), Delaware (DE), Maryland (MD), West Virginia (WV), and Virginia (VA) and Cited by:

    Trees and forests improve water and air quality, provide recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat, and strengthen local economies, thereby improving the quality of life for everyone. Riparian forest buffers are particularly cost-effective, given that the Chesapeake Bay Program's Watershed Model provides double nutrient reduction "credit.   These volunteers were planting riparian tree species (stream side species) to create a forest buffer. Because of their ability to act as natural filters, trees serve as the best form of land use to protect against farm runoff and to increase water .
