Trees Planted

The Japanese Zelkova (Zelkova serrata) is one of the many species of trees regularly planted in DC

The District’s Urban Forestry Administration is responsible for planting street trees throughout the city. Just before Christmas we published a map (below) of the UFA’s 2010 tree planting list for LeDroit Park and Bloomingdale.

What a great joy it was to walk home Thursday night to spot a new Japanese zelkova (pictured above) taking root between the sidewalk and street beside our house.  A quick walk around the neighborhood revealed that the other trees had been planted, too.
