The Marylanders Plant Trees Program offers instant savings when you purchase a new tree from a participating nursery. The state program from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources offers a $25 coupon to purchase any native tree that costs more than $50. There is no limit on how many coupons you use and you can download it from the Marylanders Plant Trees web site.
When you register your new tree at www.trees.maryland.gov you join fellow Marylanders who have already planted and registered over 40,000 trees. Check out other tools on the website where you can calculate the environmental and economic benefits of your new trees and learn how to plant and care for them. Be sure to use the interactive maps and charts to see how you are part of a larger community planting trees throughout the state.
Residents that are not able to plant at tree in their own yard can give the gift of trees with Tree-Mendous Maryland. See: www.dnr.state.md.us/forests/Treemendous
PLANT and BE COUNTED is a call to all Marylanders and businesses to plant and register trees. The goal is 50,000 trees a year. It’s something every Marylander can do to create a smarter, greener future for our families for generations to come.
