Save Baltimore Trees From The Grand Prix

Trees Before Grand Prix

Baltidome has received this plea…

The Baltimore Grand Prix is seeking to clear cut as many as 136 mature trees and replace them with 139 “new” portable trees in planters.

We’re seeking an injunction to stop this and believe it is in
violation of Article 7 of the Code of Baltimore City.

Please sign this petition. Monday multiple 40 year-old trees were
cut down and we need to act now to protect against further irreparable damage. Think about the air quality when those races zoom through downtown.
