Baltimore County Tree Orders

We are currently not accepting tree orders for Fall as of September 10th.  We are full and the program will open in July of 2022.

2021 Baltimore County Yard Tree Program

Blue Water Baltimore plants trees on residential property across Baltimore County through our cost-share yard tree program. Residents can sign up and pay reduced fees for new trees!

  • We work closely with local volunteer residents, called Neighborhood Tree Stewards, to promote the program to neighbors and help you select appropriate species and sites. While you can just select your own tree(s), we strongly encourage all residents to reach out to your local steward before ordering to assist with species selection and placement. Remember, “Right tree, Right place” is key if you want to fully enjoy your new tree for decades to come!
  • We also encourage homeowners to choose the larger canopy shade trees rather than the smaller, understory trees. Small trees should be reserved for locations with limited height or space such as under power lines. Canopy shade trees are long lived and provide many more benefits including shade, insulation, stormwater absorption, cleaner air and water, and habitat for our native butterflies and other wildlife. And they are beautiful!
  • All neighborhoods are eligible for yard trees. If you would like a street tree between the sidewalk and the street, the grass strip must be wider than 4 feet. If eligible, please note that you will have to install a root barrier.
  • We plant trees in a variety of communities including Aigburth Manor, Anneslie, Harford Park, Knollwood, Lutherville, Rodgers Forge/Gaywood, Southland Hills, Stoneleigh, Sudbrook,West Towson, Wiltondale, Glendale and Idlewylde!

Program funders include MD Dept of Natural Resources (Chesapeake and Atlantic Bays Coastal Trust Fund) and Baltimore County Environmental Protection & Sustainability grants.

Please review the Neighborhood Tree Species Look Book to determine the best species for your yard!
