Who We Are

What We Do

Commonly referred to as Forestry Boards, the Forest Conservancy District Boards function in all jurisdictions, 23 Maryland Counties and Baltimore City. The 24 boards are joined in a State Association of Forest Conservancy District Boards. The Maryland Association provides a means of communication and exchange of ideas among the local boards and acts as a channel to its parent agency, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources-Forest Service.

The Forestry Boards were established in 1943 to assist the State’s Forest Park and Wildlife Service with the promotion of rural forest management on privately owned woodlands. Today, the role of the Forestry Boards has been expanded to help restore the Chesapeake Bay, improve the environment in urban and suburban areas, and educate the general public about the wide range of forest benefits.
