  • The TreeKeepers program, sponsored by the Baltimore Tree Trust educates residents and increases their role in the care of the City’s trees.
  • TreeBaltimore can provide trees at no or low cost. Also check with Blue Water Baltimore and the Baltimore Orchard Project for trees that are appropriate for planting in forest patches.
  • There’s new scientific research that shows how living near a forest benefits your brain health.
  • A new report by the Nature Conservancy argues that the urban canopy should be considered—and funded—as a part of a city’s public health infrastructure.
  • Here’s a great resource produced by the USDA Forest Service that discusses how to conserve trees. Special thanks goes out to James a student from Home School Adventures who found this page for us!
