Save $$$$ On Trees

Here's a money saving environmental idea we received from the folks in Town Center, courtesy of the county's master gardener:

Consider planting native trees, shrubs, vines and perennials. Plants adapted to our local environment, provide food and shelter for wildlife, and require little maintenance once established. Currently the Maryland Department of Natural Resources has a coupon worth $25 off the purchase of one native tree with a retail value of $50 or more at participating retail nurseries and garden centers. Check out their Web site for coupon, list of trees, retail nurseries and much more.
