Why Plant Large Canopy Trees?
When properly selected, located, planted and maintained, native overstory trees:
- Provide shade and funnel air in the summer for cooling and form windbreaks in the winter for warming
- Soak up excess storm water, filter pollutants and control erosion
- Improve community aesthetics and increase property values
- Provide bird and other wildlife habitat
- Reduce energy costs, clean the air and sequester carbon dioxide
- Contribute to Maryland’s 2020 goal of “No Net Loss of Forests” and the County’s Tree Canopy goals
- Facilitate Baltimore County’s work to help restore the Chesapeake Bay

Have a Large Area to Plant?
If you have one acre or more of land in Baltimore County that you (or you and a contiguous neighbor) want to reforest, we're interested in working with you as part of our expanded reforestation efforts for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP).
Trees planted through the WIP program incur no cost to homeowners or landowners. Funding for Phase II of the WIP was generated through Baltimore County's Stormwater Remediation Fee.
