Montgomery County RainScapes program offers rebates of up to $600 for Urban Tree Canopy as stormwater and energy reduction practice on residential and commercial properties; Montgomery County, MD

Montgomery County Rainscapes program

The mission of the RainScapes Program is to promote sustainable stormwater management practices throughout Montgomery County that support the County's water quality and runoff reduction requirements for its NPDES MS 4 Permit

Why are only certain watersheds eligible for the Urban Tree Rebate?

The watersheds named in the Urban Tree Rebate are those which have lost a significant portion of their Urban Tree Canopy. This rebate is to encourage tree planting in those areas and tree placement on the property should be done to provide shading of impervious surfaces and Heating/ cooling units.
