895 Forested Acres

Earlier this month, the Maryland Tree Farm Committee recognized Baltimore County’s outstanding work in sustainable forestry and for the enrollment of 895 forested acres of Oregon Ridge Park into the Maryland Tree Farm program. Oregon Ridge Park is now part of the American Tree Farm System, the largest and oldest sustainable family woodland system in America. With this enrollment, Baltimore County reaffirms its commitment to sustainable forestry at Oregon Ridge Park by meeting the nine standards of the American Tree Farm System and managing the forest for water, wildlife, timber and recreation.
