Tree Care & Tree Subsidy Program

Tree Care & Tree Subsidy Program

The Village plants and maintains trees in the public right-of-way (ROW) throughout the Village.  The Village arranges with independent contractors for tree care.  Trees in the ROW cannot be removed without the inspection and approval of an arborist and a permit from the State of Maryland. 

Details about general tree care, requirements for the protection of trees in the ROW during construction, and ordinances related to tree protection are detailed in Chapter 9 of the Code of Ordinances – July 2016 for the Village of Martin’s Additions.  Please contact the Village Office ( or 301-656-4112) or The Village's Tree Supervisor Paula Goldberg (  if you have questions about trees in the ROW. 

Arbor Day 2024

Fall-1-300x142Arbor Day is celebrated every year throughout the globe as a celebration of trees and as an official "tree planting day." It began 151 years ago as a celebration of tree-planting in Nebraska. 2023 marks the 141st year that Maryland has celebrated Arbor Day, and it is on Wednesday, April 3 this year.

In the Village of Martin's Additions, the planting of trees and focus on the tree canopy has long been a priority. We are proud of our tree canopy and of the recognition we have received from the state of Maryland through our long-standing, annual PLANT award for our sustained programs for tree-planting and care as well as our being designated a Tree City through the Arbor Day Foundation.

This year, we will celebrate Arbor Day with a Friday Walk with the Village Manager at 12:00 on Friday, A pril5, during which we will visit our newly-planted trees. Happy Arbor Day!
