A New Tool for our Bioretention Planter

If you happen to be in the Brookland neighborhood, cruise over to our headquarters on12th and Irving Streets to see our bioretention planter and our new interpretive panel now stationed at the entrance.

The interpretive panel is an informative introduction to the planning and design that has made Casey Trees headquarters an example of how a small building can help slow and filter stormwater, reduce energy consumption and provide several other environmental benefits. 

If you stop to read the panel, you will learn how bioretention planters work, how Silva Cells help trees reach their full growth potential and what trees are included. We've also included details and photos of our cool roof and three green roofs. From spring through fall, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the green roofs from the location of the panel.

Our bioretention planter is charming and changing all year long, so stop by and take a look the next time you’re in the neighborhood.
