In part one of Stormwater “Roots”, we will be looking at reforestation programs designed to convert turf to managed forest conditions through larger-scale plantings. We will hear about Frederick County’s Creek ReLeaf Program and Baltimore County’s Turf to Trees Program to learn more about how to target potential sites, find resources for the program, and get landowners on-board.
