You May be Eligible to Win a Prize When You Plant and Register a Tree

Crofton residents, you may be eligible to win a Yacht tour for 10 or a $100 gift card to a local nursery by simply planting and registering a tree.  It’s all part of the  Marylanders Plant Trees Initiative, a 2009 challenge by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources to citizens and organizations to partner plant 50,000 new trees.

On Arbor Day 2011, the goal was doubled and Marylanders were asked to plant an additional 50,000 trees by the end of 2012. Nurseries across the state have made it easy for you by accepting a coupon for when you purchase a tree from them.

The next prize drawing is scheduled for May 2, 2011, and the prizes are local to our own Anne Arundel County:

  • A $100 gift card to Greenstreet Gardens in Lothian (one of the door prize donors for our Plant It Pink event last spring)
  • A $100 gift card to Bru-Mar Gardens Nursery & Gifts in Annapolis
  •  A Yacht Tour for 10 on the Blue Mist on the West River, compliments of WestRhode RiverKeeper

For more information, including suggestions on selecting and planting trees, a list of participating nurseries, and your $25 off coupon, visit the website for Marylanders Plant Trees.
