"There's so much lawn out there," said Mike Kay, the Frederick County Forester for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. "We should encourage people to plant more trees."
Tree plantings have proliferated across Frederick County this month, along streams, in parks, on farms and at schools. Tree plantings are easy to spot, because the young seedlings are encased in deer-proof plastic tubes.
There are also programs to help homeowners plant more trees and wildflowers. All it takes is a little research, a few tools and a desire to get your hands dirty.
