City of Trees airs on Maryland Public Television

In April, CITY OF TREES will have a special broadcast on Maryland Public Television on the Emmy-nominated series America ReFramed.


Following our national broadcast last April and encore broadcast in January in other parts of the country, we are thrilled to finally bring the film to MPT audiences closer to home. We are honored to be part of the public television family and particularly grateful to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for supporting America ReFramed and all the documentary programs it brings to public television audiences for free.

For Maryland public television viewers, CITY OF TREES will air three times:

  • THIS Saturday, April 1 at 9pm EST on MPT
  • THIS Sunday, April 2 at 4:30pm on MPT
  • Tuesday, April 18 at 9pm on MPT2
