TreeBaltimore provides trees and other tree planting/maintenance resources, as well as, a multitude of different trainings and programs tied to increasing and improving our Urban Tree Canopy.

Baltimore City Urban Forestry Cicada Statement


BCRP - Urban Forestry is not changing any of our tree planting efforts.  While the correct size netting properly installed and maintained can reduce the damage from cicadas to young tree branches,  we do not believe it is necessary at as city - wide strategy. Though it may be something you want to do for your young trees!

While some trees may be affected, we believe in letting nature take its course.   The vast majority of damaged trees will survive and eventually thrive.  Some trees effected may need a little pruning this Fall, check out our TreeKeepers' classes for more on pruning.


Whether you want to learn more about where Baltimore gained and loss tree canopy, find local and state champions, or just figure out what the tree is in front of your house, we got a map for that!
