If you live in the Wheaton Central Business District, you may be eligible for a free tree under a new Planning Department program in Montgomery County.
Interested property owners can submit an application to the Planning Department, and if selected must sign a two-year watering agreement.
Funding for the Shades of Green program comes from payments from developers for trees lost during the development process.
See a map of the Wheaton Central Business District to determine whether your property falls within the borders.
Free trees will also be offered to residents of Montgomery Hills and the Silver Spring Central Business District.
