Carroll County’s parks have many, many trees that provide benefits to people and wildlife. Some of these trees are truly TREEmendous! We are highlighting 5 of our park trees in our new TREEmendous program! Not only can you learn more about each type of tree such as its age, uses, and wildlife benefits but also what was going on in the word when they were planted.

We encourage you to visit these special trees and take a minute to share your thoughts and what you like about them. Send us a picture of you posing with the tree. Even better, if you ever wanted to ask a tree a question, this is your chance. By using the latest technology known as TREEmail, you can send a message directly to one or more of the trees below. Please include your name, age and comment or question in your TREEmail and wait for a response.
