No, Casey Trees is unfortunately not opening a satellite office in Helsinki (which I would gladly volunteer to run) but our Executive Director, Mark Buscaino has recently taken the good message of urban forestry and the importance of tree care to Finland's Capital.

In March and April, twelve prominent Washingtonians from different professional disciplines made the long but worthy trek to Helsinki as part of Invitation to Helsinki - a unique program designed to build lasting relationships between Helsinki and D.C. Mission accomplished.

The result was a great cultural and knowledge exchange between all the participants and a fantastic new exhibit at the Embassy of Finland - My Helsinki. The exhibit is also accompanied by a fun, interactive website featuring journal entries from all the participants including our very own Mark.

My Helsinki runs May 2-31, 2009 (Friday - Sunday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.) at the Embassy of Finland located at 3301 Massachusetts Avenue, NW. The exhibit is free.
