The City of Laurel will continue its commitment to a greener, healthier community and Mayor Craig A. Moe is pleased to do this by hosting the “Energy-Saving Trees” initiative.

Through this program, City of Laurel residents are eligible to receive one free tree to plant around their home that will help reduce their home’s energy needs, reduce their carbon footprint, improve air quality and effectively catch stormwater runoff.

This program is made possible by the Arbor Day Foundation, Baltimore Gas & Electric and the City of Laurel Department of Parks and Recreation. Residents can choose from one of the following 2’ to 4’ tall trees: 

  • White Dogwood
  • Bald Cypress
  • Eastern Redbud
  • Northern Red Oak
  • Red Maple
  • Shadblow Serviceberry

Log on to to request a tree and arrange for pick up at the Parks and Recreation Maintenance Complex located at 7705 Old Sandy Spring Road. 

For more information about this or other Parks and Recreation programs, please Call 301-725-7800.
