Victory for Montgomery County Trees

Thank you to the Montgomery County Council, the County Executive, and all of you who stood up for trees! On July 23, the Council passed two bills that are good for Rock Creek. One will help preserve the county's tree canopy as whole. The other will promote and protect roadside trees in the County right of way. Nearly 80% of Rock Creek is located in Montgomery County, and trees in the surrounding urban areas and neighborhoods soak up runoff that damages and pollutes the creek. Rock Creek Conservancy and its supporters helped push for this important legislation. We encourage you to thank the entire Council for their action.
