Project Description

The Creek ReLeaf program is a multi-year reforestation program designed to increase the total amount of forested area within Frederick County Maryland on public and privately owned lands. The Creek ReLeaf project is remarkable for the scale of its impact, with 150 acres planted in 2018 and an additional 185 acres planned for the coming year. The program also has a noteworthy process for assessing potential sites, prioritizing plantings that align closely with the county’s Green Infrastructure plan, occur along stream banks, or provide thermal benefits to Brook Trout watersheds.
