Tree Frederick sales open through March 11

Sustainability_BLUE

In its third year, the Tree Frederick program aims to assist City homeowners in planting more trees. The effort will ultimately increase tree canopy in the City, help improve air and water quality, and might even help homeowners reduce energy costs. The sale runs through March 11. Residents will pick up their trees at the Frederick Food Security Network's Native Plant Sale on Sunday, May 1 at the Evangelical Reformed United Church of Christ, 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

According to the 2016 Tree Canopy Assessment, the City’s canopy is about 20 percent, about half of the 40 percent goal. 

“To meet that goal, we’ll need everyone’s help,” said City Sustainability Manager Jenny Willoughby. 

Tree Frederick helps homeowners purchase containerized trees through a 50-50 cost share. Most of the trees will cost homeowners about $15 to $20 each, depending on species and size available, with the City paying for the remainder of the cost. 

“We selected this year’s species list with small and large yards in mind. All the species are native and range from small trees like witchhazel to large trees like swamp white oak,” said Willoughby. If residents are unsure which tree is right for their space, the Tree Frederick Guide is available on the website to help. Residents may also reach out to Jenny Willoughby with questions at jwilloughby@cityoffrederickmd.gov.

The Tree Frederick program is open only to City residents. Not sure if you're a resident? The City's GIS can help! Visit our Sustainability Page for GIS links and link to the online sales form! https://cityoffrederickmd.gov/891/Sustainability
