Maryland Department of Natural Resources Forest Service. This group will aim to inform citizens about what DNR Forest Service is doing to help Maryland plant trees to help sustain Maryland's current tree canopy at 40%. There are programs to help the public plant on public lands, Treemendous Maryland. Programs to share the Gift of Trees with friends and family in memory or celebration of a special someone or event. There are also incentives like Marylanders Plant Trees that provides a $25 off coupon on any tree over $50 at participating nurseries.
The Maryland Urban and Community Forest Committee (MUCFC) supports a grant program that assists communities with tree plantings and educational signage projects to support urban forestry.
The State of Maryland's Tree-Mendous program provides high-quality, native trees and shrubs available at reasonable prices for plantings on public lands. The trees may be planted in places such as community open spaces, school grounds, government facilities, and rights-of-way. Get involved in your community and make a lasting impact. Trees improve the health and beauty of any community!
We look forward to working with you, answering your questions and providing support for planting trees in Maryland!
