Project Canopy, a cooperative partnership between the Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry’s Maine Forest Service and GrowSmart Maine, encourages communities to develop project proposals that support sustainable community forestry management, increase awareness of the benefits of trees and forests, and increase the health and livability of communities through sound tree planting and maintenance. Project Canopy announces the availability of grants to local municipal units of government, educational institutions and non-profit organizations that support community efforts to develop and maintain long-term community forestry programs.
