Welcome to the Jericho Underhill Land Trust (JULT)

Jericho Underhill Land Trust is a private, non-profit organization founded for the purpose of conserving our productive working landscape, scenic vistas and important wildlife habitats. JULT accomplishes that mission by working hand-in-hand with landowners and interested citizens who share a similar goal.

Here's a photo of our successful silver maple tree planting at Mills Riverside Park. Our thanks to the Jericho Conservation Commission, the seventh graders of Browns River Middle School, and the MMU SHAPE club.
Here's the map of the trees we've planted. There is a list on the covered bridge which indicates which trees have already been adopted and which ones could use a helping hand. Come visit Mills Riverside Park and check them out.

Tree Planting at Mills Riverside Park

On May 3 and 4 we collaborated with the Mills Riverside Park District, the Jericho Conservation Commission, Browns River Middle School and the Underhill ID School to plant silver maples in Mills Riverside Park to shade out the invasive knotweed.  The trees have been put up for "adoption" which allows park users to pick a tree and help us make sure no knotweed is growing around it.  It takes a community to plant a tree in a knotweed patch, but trees grow stronger with supportive caretakers.  Please consider adopting a tree.
