Casey Trees on Flickr

Newly planted tree on Massachusetts Avenue.
As we begin the spring 2011 planting season, we are introducing a new resource to feature our best photos and to tell the story of how Casey Trees and our volunteers plant trees. We're using Flickr because it's a great place to view photos in high resolution and because the community features will allow us to share more about our efforts to promote trees while enabling volunteers and others to contribute their photos of trees in the District. Visit our page often, as we will be updating it with new photos from our events regularly.

We have an archive of all of our recent tree planting photos, and we will feature photos from events after they occur. On our Flickr page, collections include seasons or larger periods of time, while photo sets feature a single day of pictures. All of our photos are geotagged so you can see where we are active on the map. Flickr also has a great feature that presents photos in a full-sized slideshow. Here is a slideshow from our tree yard set showcasing our new tree arrivals for the spring 2011 season. As always, we will share some of our favorite photos on this blog.

You can contribute to Casey Trees on Flickr as well. If you have a Flickr account you can submit photos to our Group Pool by simply joining our group and adding a photo from your photostream. When you add a photo to the group, your photo is shared with us and anyone else who visits the Casey Trees Flickr group page. If we like your photo, we might feature it on this blog or on our website, attributed to you. Our only rule for submitting photos is that the picture should be about Casey Trees or about trees in Washington, D.C. So get a roll of film (or memory card) loaded up and share your photos of trees with us!
