Baltimore County—Proactively Managing Forest Resources for the Future

A green renaissance is underway in Baltimore County to preserve greenspace and improve existing neighborhoods. Baltimore County was one of three counties selected to participate in a cooperative Federal, State, and local pilot project to assess the ecological and economic sustainability of its forest resources. Following a forum in 2003, a steering committee of stakeholders developed a Forest Sustainability Strategy that provides detailed guiding principles, goals, recommended actions, and data assessment and analyses needs for 15 ecological and economic issues related to forest sustainability.
