Baltimore City Forestry Board Monthly Meeting

Forest Conservancy District Boards, referred to as Forestry Boards, function in all 23 Maryland countries and Baltimore City. The county boards were established by law in 1943 by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The Baltimore City Forestry Board held its first meeting in June 1987.
The Baltimore City Board is composed of individuals who serve voluntarily to promote and nurture the expansion of the urban canopy so as to improve the health and welfare of Baltimore’s residents. Each year, we organize two free tree giveaways, lead an Arbor Day tree planting with a local school, and fund raise to send two high school students to the Natural Resources Career Camp.
All members of the Board are unpaid volunteers who work closely with state foresters. Members are formally appointed by the Director of the Maryland DNR-Forest Service, but anyone can attend meetings to speak for the trees and learn more about what’s going on with our tree canopy in Baltimore!
