Adopt Trees in Prince George’s County with FTAP: Sponsored by Chesapeake Bay Trust, Boosting Your Yard & Community Environment

Thank you in advance for your interest in adopting free trees through the Family Tree Adoption Program (FTAP). Through this program, we are building a community of trees and environment lovers. This program is sponsored by Prince George’s County and the Chesapeake Bay Trust.

All trees received from FTAP are free and must be planted on private property in Prince George’s County, Maryland. After you complete and submit your tree reservation form, we will contact you to go over your selection to ensure that you have selected the trees that will best survive in your yard. You will select a free delivery and planting date for your tree(s).

Properties in the City of Bowie are not eligible for this program because the city manages its tree program independently of the County.
