of Washington County


The Washington County Forest Conservancy District Board promotes the awareness, stewardship, conservation, restoration, and sustainable use of the forest resources of Washington County, Maryland. It is a volunteer organization that provides the citizens and local governments of Washington County with a variety of opportunities to learn about the trees and forest resources of Maryland. The Washington County Board is part of the State Association of Forest Conservancy District Boards, which includes forestry boards from all 23 counties and Baltimore City. The forestry boards were established in 1943 by an act of the Maryland Legislature to assist the Maryland Forest Service with policy issues and the promotion of forest conservation.
