Md. Coupon Can Help Replace Trees Lost In Storm

ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) — For people who lost trees because of Hurricane Irene, Maryland has a program to help residents replace them.

WTOP Radio reports the state is extending a program that encourages residents to plant more native trees with $25 coupons.

The Marylanders Plant Trees initiative started in 2009. The goal was to plant 50,000 native trees in the state by 2010. It was deemed a success and was extended this year with the goal of planting an additional 50,000 trees by the end of 2012.

Under the program the trees must cost at least $50, and they must be on the list of approved trees.
