Do you know a creative 5th grader? 

Encourage them - and their classmates - to get artistic this winter! Kids can share their knowledge by creating a poster with this year's theme: "Trees are Terrific and Forests are too!" Learn more...

Program Summary

TREE-MENDOUS MARYLAND, a program of the Maryland Forest Service, remains one of our most popular programs aimed at helping citizens restore tree cover on public land and community open space in Maryland. To date, we have assisted more than 3,000 towns and communities, parks, and schools planting trees and shrubs to help clean the water, clean the air, and keep our towns and cities inviting, livable, and environmentally viable places to live.

Tree-mendous Maryland’s goal is to help Maryland residents have access to affordable trees to plant on their public lands. With permission from land owners, volunteers can plant trees at schools, in state and community parks, local open space, street trees and more. Gather your friends, scout troop or classmates and plant a tree today to clean your air, clean your water and beautify your home town!

“Spotlight” Tree Planting

Tree-Mendous trees are planted all over the State of Maryland. All of the trees are planted on public lands, yet some are more accessible than others. One of the most public plantings of Tree-Mendous trees can be found at the new Elk Neck State Forest Arboretum Walking Trail. Tree-Mendous trees were used to spot plant when the original, larger tree did not survive. While only a few of the trees at the arboretum are from this program, Tree-Mendous is excited to have been a part of the first state managed arboretum.
