The Maryland Department of Natural Resources aims to expand tree cover on public lands across the state, offering trees for planting on community lands and open space through its Tree-Mendous Maryland program.

Offerings through Tree-Mendous are high-quality, native shrubs and trees, which are grown and provided by American Native Plants in Baltimore County.

Church, civic, community and school groups, homeowners associations, local governments, nonprofits, and others are eligible to purchase plantings from the program, as long as the shrubs and trees are planted on community and public land with prior approval from the landowner.

“Now is the time to prepare for spring planting,” acting Maryland State Forester Kenneth Jolly said.

“The state is proud to provide affordable, attractive, and beneficial greenery suitable for every public property and space.”

Since starting Tree-Mendous Maryland in 1989, the Maryland Forest Service has assisted more than 3,000 groups and organizations with plantings.

Tens of thousands of shrubs and trees have been planted in communities, parks, schools, squares and towns across the state.

Trees beautify the landscape, clean and filter air and water, and provide essential habitat for wildlife.
