Attention Maryland landowners: Tree planting opportunity available


The trees on your land provide you a myriad of benefits. For the past couple of years the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay has teamed up with Maryland Forest Service and the Maryland Forestry Foundation to help landowners implement tree planting projects. With funding secured from the Maryland Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund, we have been able to provide turnkey tree planting projects at no cost to the landowner and without a restrictive easement on their land. Maryland Forest Service staff works with participating landowners to develop the plan and oversee the projects that are all planted by experienced natural resources contractors and maintained for the first two growing season.


We are looking for landowners interested in a spring 2020 planting of at least one acre. Properties must be in the Trust Fund’s High or Medium priority areas. To determine if you are in their priority area, type your address into their mapping tool, which is found at the link below.  If you are interested in this opportunity or would like more information, please contact us as soon as possible at Our project list will be submitted at the end of April for consideration.
