This may come as a shock, but today is Maryland Arbor Day. That means the time has come to celebrate all the trees in your life and in your yard! “Going Green” is not just a trendy topic, it’s a noble duty to take part in. We can save the Earth by planting new trees and celebrating the ones we have. So, what kinds of things can you do to celebrate? Let’s find out!
Planting trees is one of the best ways to celebrate any Arbor Day. So, it would seem that planting trees in Maryland would be perfect for celebrating Maryland Arbor Day, right? Well, first you have to consider the type of trees you’re going to plant. Are they deciduous trees or are they evergreen trees? Deciduous trees are the type that are going to lose their leaves in the winter whereas evergreens are usually covered in cones and needles. Now, some deciduous trees produce beautiful flowers, so keep that in mind. Trees can add a certain element of beauty to your backyard landscaping projects, but they are a bit permanent. So, make sure you make good choices before you plant. Now, the best time to get planting is either in the early spring or in the late in winter, so it’s time to make some decisions. Listed below are a few trees that are Maryland natives. So, as you make your decisions you may want to consider some of these lovelies.
Deciduous Trees: Maple, Hickory, Sassafras, White Ash, etc.
Evergreens: Pines, Sweet Magnolia, Eastern Red Cedar, American Holly, etc.
