Tree Planting Assistance

Through the Maryland Urban and Community Forestry Committee (MUCFC) Grants program, the Howard County Forestry Board can help community groups fund tree planting and education projects to enhance Maryland’s urban forest. Community tree projects may be organized via schools, service organizations, homeowner organizations or other volunteer-based groups. The tree planting/educational projects must be located on public lands in parks, metropolitan areas, cities or towns. The maximum grant awarded per project is $1,500. Grants are due to Grants Chair, with forestry board member original signature, by 4:30 p.m. on February, June or September 15 and reviewed shortly thereafter.

We especially encourage all of our local HOAs and church groups to apply!

Please visit the MUCFC Grants page at the Department of Natural Resources for more details and to download the application.
