If you are working on improving the landscape of your property and have not considered planting a tree. Here are three Maryland-Native trees you can think about planting.
- American Holly – These native trees grow anywhere from fifteen to fifty feet tall and can be identified by their red berries present throughout the winter months. The berries are food to almost 20 different species, including birds, squirrels, deer, and other small animals.
- Maple – Maple trees have winged seeds that are frequently eaten by cardinals and quail. Goldfinches use the leaves and branches of this native Maryland tree for nest construction. The sugar maple, mostly found in the state’s western and central areas, provides sweet sap for maple syrup.

The leaves can grow to be 8 inches long and 4 inches wide with a deep glossy green upper surface and usually turns red or brown in autumn.
