TreeTreeBaltimore is a mayoral initiative spearheaded by Baltimore City Recreation and Parks. This program strives to increase the urban tree canopy through the establishment, management and preservation of trees.

TreeBaltimore’s goals are accomplished through a combination of activities:

• Care of existing trees;

• Natural regeneration of our forests;

• Fostering a sense of stewardship.

The TreeBaltimore campaign is a “call to action” for residents to plant a tree. By planting and caring for a tree at your home, business or park, you are helping to clean our air and water. Trees also help reduce summer air temperatures, save energy, buffer noise and increase the economic stability of Baltimore.
