Forest Mitigation

When landowners, developers, and property owners plan out their next project, they must account for trees that may need to be removed, as well as those that can be re-planted. To mitigate for trees lost, developers can cut their costs by reaching out to us to plant the trees on their behalf. This service allows developers to meet their Baltimore City forest mitigation requirements in lieu of paying a fee. With the partnership of the Baltimore City Office of Sustainability, we have planted over 100 trees since starting our Forest Mitigation program in 2018.

We expect this program to grow substantially in the coming year as we develop relationships with local engineering firms and developers become aware of the opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause while saving money.

If you are representing a development company, and would like to ensure that your mitigated trees are properly planted and cared for, please reach out to us. Please email Justin Bowers at justin@baltimoretreetrust.org to learn more.
