Abstract Forests produce the cleanest water of any land use. Forests in the Chesapeake Bay watershed once covered 95 percent of the land in the watershed. Today, only 55 percent is forested, and forests are lost to development at a rate of 100 acres per day. Restoring forest cover across urban-to-rural landscapes is a critical, cost-effective way to meet multiple goals water quality, air quality, wildlife and fisheries habitat, and sustainable communities.
