From its hilltop perch at Mount Pleasant Farm in western Howard County, a lightning-scarred, woodpecker-pocked, breathtaking giant of a tree has had a good view for a long time. It watched over generations of the family that gave it life. It saw a country born, a county form, a population boom. For the past decade, since the farm was left for a conservancy to manage, it has stood as a living landmark for thousands of schoolchildren, artists, gardeners and ecologists passing through the Woodstock grounds.

Bill Gant says asking him to choose a favorite plant or a favorite season in his garden is like asking him to choose "among my children. " When Gant and his wife, Nancy, bought their home in 2004, the previous owner had created a place for a large flower bed in the side front lawn, but nothing was planted in it. "The garden was a canvas, my trowel awaiting inspiration," says Gant, a Harford County title researcher who writes poetry in his...

Harry and Cristina Quigley's garden grew from the inside out. The couple purchased a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home in the shady neighborhood Poplar Hill in North Baltimore in 1996 and found themselves looking out on a bland landscape of trees and grass. "We became gardeners because we wanted to look at something nice outside," Cristina Quigley says. "We were total novices. " They first tackled a steep slope in the front of their home that was difficult to mow. They ripped up the grass and put in rhododendron and some short-lived plants that Cristina Quigley barely remembers.

Responding to the outcry of Poplar Point residents over a cell-phone tower they say has destroyed the character of their Edgewater community, County Executive Janet S. Owens ordered planning and permits officials yesterday to review the laws governing tower location and recommend changes within 60 days. Owens said she is particularly concerned that county laws do not require cellular carriers or county zoning officials to notify owners of adjoining property when cell towers are built on commercially zoned land.

While most of the Chesapeake Bay's islands are slowly vanishing beneath the waves, one not far from Baltimore is staging a remarkable renaissance. Poplar Island, former hunting retreat, hangout for politicos and black cat farm, had nearly washed away by the late 1990s. But it's since been restored to the size it was when it was still a thriving 19th-century farming and fishing community, using muck dredged from the shipping channels leading to Baltimore just 34 miles to the northwest.

In response to a national call for homegrown, Earth-friendly fuels to fill Americans' gas tanks, a couple of University of Maryland researchers are planting trees. Fuel derived from the hardy, fast-growing common poplar could eventually replace some of the billions of gallons of petroleum-based fuel now pumped a year, say biologist Gary Coleman and engineer Ganesh Sriram, who have partnered to help turn the woody plant into a widely used biofuel. "Oil is a finite resource," said Coleman, a professor of plant science in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.
