Waterfront and Streamside Landowners can Reserve Seedlings

Deadline April 16

Photo of trees planted along a streamside in a residential neighborhood(March 15, 2021) – The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is offering free tree seedlings to landowners in several counties who have a creek, drainage ditch, stream, or other waterway on or near their property through the Backyard Buffers program.

Trees and shrubs planted along waterways help improve water quality by absorbing excess nutrients, lowering peak water temperatures, reducing sediment, and stabilizing stream banks.

Each “buffer in a bag” contains approximately 25 native bare-root tree and shrub seedlings with species appropriate to their region.

Maryland Forest Service staff will provide information on tree maintenance and planting techniques, in addition to suggestions of other suitable native species at the time of pickup.

Quantities are limited so reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Deadline to order in Worcester County is Friday, April 16, 2021 and pickup will be Saturday, April 17, 2021 (details TBA). For more information, contact Deputy Town Administrator Mary Bohlen at 410-641-4314 or mbohlen@berlinmd.gov.   For other counties, please visit the Department of Natural Resources department’s website.
