the Bloomingdale First Street NW Tree Box Project

A neighbor passed along this flyer and asked me to share it with the community.

This sounds like a great community project!

Fairly sure the City plants street trees, not Casey Trees. In fact, they got into trouble with that a couple of years ago.

I would put in a 311 request for a tree planting. They're very receptive to those, as the city has a quota to meet for tree planting.

That's correct. But the additional plantings and improved maintenance of the tree boxes are theresponsibility of the homeowners. Casey Tree's has community programs and as such they are interested in helping the First Street Tree project. The city plants the larger canopy trees, which they are in the process of doing this spring.
