“In a press release coinciding with Earth Week (April 20-22), Earth Day (April 22) and coming just ahead of Arbor Day (April 30), [Baltimore County Executive Johnny] Olszewski said more than 215 property owners had planted more than 11,000 trees since he announced a county-wide initiative to increase the county’s tree canopy last fall…”– Dan Shalin, Patch Staff, April 19, 2021 (You will need a free Patch subscription to read the full article.)

An increased tree canopy reduces stress and brings down summer air temperatures.”

The Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability will host a tree giveaway on April 30 and May 1, at the Center for Maryland Agricultural and Farm Park in Cockeysville, 1114 Shawan Road. Baltimore County residents only can order up to five trees at this website. A mere 250 trees remain for a giveaway.
