Examples are parks, school grounds, municipal streets, government facilities, and homeowners associations open spaces.

Special groves of ten or more trees can be arranged. Contact: TREE-MENDOUS MARYLAND 410-260-8531. Or visit the website at www.dnr.state.md.us/Forests/Treemendous.
Partnership Planting Program – MD State Highway Administration
This public/private partnership is aimed at beautification and reforestation of Maryland's highway rights of way by planting trees, shrubs, and flowers. The Maryland State Highway Administration provides plants, mulch, fertilizer, water, and tools. Volunteers provide the labor to install the plants. Some volunteer groups "adopt" an area, returning to complete large projects over time. Email email@example.com or call 410-545-8589.
A national award winning action program that provides opportunities for citizens, schools, community associations, corporations and businesses to work together to "re green" the state. During the past eighteen years over a million Marylanders have participated in TREE MENDOUS Maryland projects and have planted over eight million native trees, seedlings, and shrubs. Volunteer and community groups have purchased over 250,000 large trees through a tree sales program. Companies like Winchester Homes, Northrup Grumond, Whole Foods, Baltimore City Rotary Club, Seventh Generation, and McCormick have donated services and funds, and their volunteers have planted parkland, streamside buffers, and highway rights-of-ways throughout the State. TREE MENDOUS Maryland can help you find the right program to meet your individual needs or can customize a program for your community, school or business. www.dnr.maryland.gov/forests/treemendous
