Highlights from two of the past week's plantings:
On Thursday, April 7 we planted nine trees at Tudor Place, returning after a successful larger planting last October. The grounds of this beautiful, historic home in Georgetown serve as a refuge from the bustle of the city streets. We have joined the Tudor Place organization to restore some of the property's original tree species. Deb and Jeff Nussbaum graciously sponsored this planting in honor of the birth of their child, Sophia. Among our 25 volunteers were seven boy scouts from Troop 632 in Tecumseh, Michigan who delayed their sightseeing to join our community planting.

Lead Citizen Forester Earl Lee and Project Organizer Garrett Lee put together a slide show of photos and other content from the Columbia Heights planting - you should take a look!
