Marylanders Grow Trees
Plant and be counted!
Forests are our most strategically important natural resource. Trees protect water quality, clean our air and provide wildlife habitat. One large tree can eliminate 5,000 gallons of stormwater runoff each year, and well placed trees can help reduce energy costs by 15 to 35 percent.
Trees also enhance our quality of life, beautifying neighborhoods and highways, providing sound barriers and shade, and helping increase property values.
Today the State of Maryland is partnering with businesses, communities and citizens like you to help fund and plant new tree cover. Our State agencies are working to plant 1 million new trees by 2011, and were asking private citizens to join us by planting 50,000 trees by 2010.
Explore this website for advice on where, how and what type of trees to plant, and discount coupons made possible through environmental mitigation fines and participating vendors -- for your tree purchases. Then, come back and register the trees youve planted, site them on our interactive map and calculate their benefits to you and our planet!
Working together as One Maryland, we can not only preserve our remaining tree cover but grow new trees to create a smarter, greener State for our planet and for future generations.
Governor Martin O'Malley
