About

Tree maintenance involves removing invasive plants, checking planted trees to see if the shelter needs to be removed and removing if necessary, digging out the planting tube, and making sure the plant is upright.

The planted trees protect the Loch Raven Reservoir, Baltimore City's drinking water. Trees are important. They emit oxygen, sequester carbon dioxide, absorb pollutants, prevent erosion and storm water runoff and provide animal habitat.
