MONTGOMERY COUNTY MARYLAND FORESTRY BOARD

Montgomery County Forest Conservancy District Board

Welcome to the new Montgomery County Forestry Board Website!

OUR HISTORY

In 1943 the Maryland Legislature passed an Act creating 24 Forest Conservancy Boards, one in each county and one in Baltimore City.

OUR MISSION

The Boards act as advocates of sound forest management practices, and promote conservation of Maryland's forest resources. Board activities include educational programs, planting of school forests, and timber harvest plan reviews. Because the Boards are county-based, each one develops an understanding and awareness of regional issues, becoming allies for local governments and landowners who are concerned with the maintenance and stewardship of public and private forest resources. The Board members volunteer more than 500 hours each year teaching the value of trees and the best forest management practices.
