Baltimore, MD, September 22, 2017 – While most urban communities throughout the U.S. are losing tree canopy cover due to a wide variety of threats – including insects, disease, and storms – Baltimore is bucking the trend. Between 2007 to 2015, the City of Baltimore saw a small increase in its urban tree canopy cover.

Data analyzed by the U.S. Forest Service in collaboration with the City of Baltimore and the University of Vermont show that the city’s urban tree canopy inched up from 27 percent to 28 percent between 2007 and 2015. Tree canopy is the extent of the outer layers of leaves, or canopy, of a tree or group of trees. Percentage of tree canopy cover measures the portion of an area that has tree coverage when viewed or measured from above. While the increase in tree canopy is not dramatic, it is a meaningful step in the right direction, according to Morgan Grove, a research forester and team leader in the Forest Service’s Baltimore Field Station.
TCNA continually works to increase tree cover in the neighborhood. See below for recent tree plantings…

TCNA is looking for a volunteer to monitor neighborhood trees and notify the authorities when a tree needs to be removed or replaced.  If you are interested (perhaps you need a reason to take a new route on your walk?) please contact

New Trees in Bishop's Park

UPDATE BISHOP’S PARK (Northwest corner — University Parkway and Charles Street)

Here’s an update on the Bishop Square planting. Attached is a preliminary plan which has been approved by the city. Thanks goes to The Cathedral of the Incarnation and One Water Partnership who are paying for the trees. It works out to be 27 trees. The date of the planting is up in the air right now but will probably be a weekday in late October or early November.

The project includes both small and large trees. Large would be a typical large canopy street tree, such as oaks, elms etc.,  and small would be a tree that would top out eventually at 25-40 feet and smaller spread. Small trees such as hawthorns and serviceberries would be placed behind the monument and along University to avoid impacting street lights.
