MD Close to Tree-planting Goal for 2012

While 2012 is nearly over, the goal of Marylanders planting and registering 100,000 trees through the Marylanders Plant Trees program is close – and there’s still time for you to plant and be counted.   Governor Martin O’Malley says over 91,000 trees have been planted across Maryland.  Trees protect water and air quality and provide important wildlife habitat. One large tree can eliminate 5,000 gallons of storm water runoff each year, and well placed trees can help reduce energy costs by 15 to 35 percent.  If you do plant a tree before the end of the year – remember to register it HERE
