Fallowing Submission Window Closes Dec 31

Fallowing 2024

Per the MCD website;

Fallowing applications will be accepted starting December 1st to December 31st. 

Applicants who want to fallow all or part of their canopy size in 2024 MUST: 


Between January 1 and February 1 of the next calendar year (2025), an applicant will need to file an Affidavit of Fallowing.

NOTE: Nurseries Cannot be fallowed

*** If you are even remotely considering fallowing next year, we strongly recommend submitting the paperwork this month during the submission window and then withdrawing later.  There is no penalty for withdrawing, you will just owe the taxes. But there is no other opportunity to choose to fallow for next year after December 31.
