Our mission is to restore Baltimore’s urban forest through increased tree planting, community engagement, and advocacy. Since our inception, we have planted over 5,500 trees on private property and in low-canopy neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City.
The Tree Trust spearheads efforts to achieve Baltimore’s 40% urban tree canopy goal by methodically planting up neighborhoods that have few existing trees, while engaging community leaders and stakeholders in the planting and sustainable maintenance of trees.
Volunteers Needed on September 15th
It’s fall planting season again! On Saturday, September 15th, we will be joined by volunteers with CityFam and the general public to plant trees in the Patterson Park area of Baltimore city. We hope to see you there!
