The Anne Arundel County Government and Chesapeake Bay Trust are excited to announce the Anne Arundel County Forestry and Forested Land Protection Grant Program is now open!

The goal of this program is to implement cost-effective reforestation and greening projects and increase the number of acres of protected forested land in the County. Since 2015, over 20,000 trees have been planted and over 250 acres of forest have been protected through this program. Let’s continue this momentum and continue to increase and preserve the County’s tree canopy!

Eligible Project Tracks:

  • Track 1: Reforestation/Afforestation of Protected Lands
  • Track 2: Permanent Protection of Forested Lands
  • Track 3: Reforestation/Afforestation and Protection of Uneased and Unforested Lands

Tree planting projects should be scheduled for fall 2024, spring 2025, and/or fall 2025.
