The Growing Home Campaign
Greening Begins in Your Own Backyard
Increasing Tree Canopy One Tree at a Time
The Growing Home Campaign provides homeowners with education about the multiple benefits of planting trees and a $10 savings on the purchase of qualifying trees.
Learn more about the Growing Home Campaign below or download the four-page Growing Home Campaign Brochure (PDF) and $10 Growing Home Campaign Tree Coupon (PDF) to use when purchasing your qualifying tree from a participating nursery and garden center retailer.
The Growing Home program is an innovative way homeowners can help increase the tree canopy in our region. The Growing Home Campaign is a public - private partnership between Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Harford County, local retail nurseries and garden centers and homeowners to encourage planting new trees on private residential land.
