TREE-MENDOUS MARYLAND, a program of the Maryland Forest Service,
remains one of our most popular programs aimed at helping citizens
restore tree cover on public land and community open space in Maryland.
To date, we have assisted more than 3,000 towns and communities, parks,
and schools planting trees and shrubs to help clean the water, clean the
air, and keep our towns and cities inviting, livable, and
environmentally viable places to live.
Tree-mendous Maryland’s goal is to help Maryland residents have
access to affordable trees to plant on their public lands. With
permission from land owners, volunteers can plant trees at schools, in
state and community parks, local open space, street trees and more.
Gather your friends, scout troop or classmates and plant a tree today to
clean your air, clean your water and beautify your home town!
Are you interested in becoming a volunteer but don’t know where to start? Click here to get connected with local organizations. Or contact the Tree-Mendous Director, firstname.lastname@example.org,
if you would like to volunteer or need more volunteers. We are looking
to grow a network or volunteers and organizations around the state of
Maryland – help us get started planting more trees!
Tree-Mendous trees are planted all over the State of Maryland. All of
the trees are planted on public lands, yet some are more accessible
than others. One of the most public plantings of Tree-Mendous trees can
be found at the new Elk Neck State Forest Arboretum Walking Trail.
Tree-Mendous trees were used to spot plant when the original, larger
tree did not survive. While only a few of the trees at the arboretum are
from this program, Tree-Mendous is excited to have been a part of the
first state managed arboretum.
