Washington County Highway Department employees planted over 600 tree seedlings in storm water retention basins throughout the Hagerstown area, as part of a pilot project which aims to reduce mowing and other maintenance efforts in these storm water management areas. This project was funded with fee-in-lieu money managed by the Washington County Soil Conservation District. The Western Maryland RC&D created the tree planting plan, selected suitable tree species, and instructed/ managed Highway Dept employees during the installation of the trees.
