Restoring Baltimore’s urban forest through increased tree planting, community engagement, and advocacy.

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 Saturday, July 14th, we will be constructing a community garden for the Berea neighborhood in east Baltimore–painting storm drains, building garden boxes, and continuing our door knocking campaign. The neighborhood association is very excited for us to bring a community garden and healthier food options to Fort Worthington neighbors and students.

Please wear closed toe shoes.

Let’s Plan a Planting

While our summer season is drawing near, and we will be focusing on watering and mulching our trees in the hot months, we would love to continue scheduling volunteer plantings for the Fall 2018 season. Learn more about how you can get involved.
