About Us

Welcome to the Maryland Forestry Foundation, your home for sustainable forestry initiatives. We're your partners in promoting responsible forestry practices and in increasing Maryland's forest cover. From advocating for innovative legislation that impacts Forestry in Maryland to overseeing Maryland's largest private property tree-planting operation, we're committed to making a greener and healthier future.

We also actively support Urban Forestry programs, nurture the next generation of environmental leaders with the largest college fellowships in Natural Resources in the mid-Atlantic, and serve as the fiduciary agent for programs like the Natural Resources Careers Camp for high school students and the Maryland Urban & Community Forest grant program .

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we prioritize transparency. While we're a member of the Maryland Association of Forest Conservancy District Boards, our independence allows us to better serve Maryland's forests and communities. Join us in safeguarding Maryland's natural treasures and fostering sustainability.
