Maryland Citizens Surpass Tree Planting Goal

Maryland Department of Natural Resources - Communications Office

50,000 New Trees Planted in 2009-2010 through Marylanders Plant Trees Program

Governor Martin O’Malley today announced that Maryland has surpassed its citizens’ goal of planting and registering 50,000 trees through the Marylanders Plant Trees program.

“I share this victory with each and every citizen who made the important contribution of planting a tree,” said Governor Martin O’Malley. “By planting trees, Marylanders are taking steps toward ensuring a sustainable future for our natural resources for our children and theirs and setting an important example for future stewards of our State.”

Governor O’Malley launched the Marylanders Plant Trees program, part of his Smart, Green & Growing initiative two years ago with a goal of planting 50,000 new trees by 2010. Marylanders heeded the challenge: 50,089 new trees were planted and registered as of December 2010.
