Maryland reaches three-year goal of planting 100,000 trees

Friday, January 11, 2013

Earlier this week, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley announced that citizens have exceeded the three-year statewide goal of planting and registering 100,000 trees by 2013 through the Marylanders Plant Trees program.

“Reaching our 100,000th tree planting goal through the Marylanders Plant Trees Program demonstrates that there are some challenges so large we can only do them together,” said Governor O’Malley. “Though this is a great milestone, there is more work to be done so we encourage all Marylanders to keep planting for a more sustainable future for generations to come.”

To date citizens have planted and registered 101,056 trees in areas all across the State under the Marylanders Plant Trees program. Once citizens register their tree online, they can observe its environmental benefits through interactive maps and charts.
