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.
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.
