Howard County prac­tices smart growth and pro­tects land through agri­cul­tural ease­ments, land preser­va­tion, and parks. Howard County also plants trees on pub­lic land and encour­ages plant­ing on pri­vate land. The Green Infra­struc­ture Net­work helps to keep track of nat­ural areas that sup­port the environment.
