Constellation Energy committed $300,000 over three years for tree planting and maintenance of existing trees in neighborhoods, on schools grounds and in parks. Through this public-private collaboration TreeBaltimore and Constellation joined to grow Baltimore’s tree canopy.
The first year strategy focuses on engaging citizens and community groups. It involves intensive, targeted outreach to a cluster of sixteen neighborhoods located east of the York Road corridor and the neighborhoods of Remington, Charles Village and Coldstream Homestead Montebello. Residents are being reached through multiple media outlets such as bus ads, street banners, door hangtags and lawn signs. There are also participatory neighborhood tree walks with experts, free tree-giveaways and delivery and planting of trees at homes, schools, businesses and along the right-of-way.
