Thank You Casey Trees

Casey Trees and the fabulous volunteers for Casey Trees and the Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy spent time yesterday replanting native trees and shrubs in Bridge Hollow to frame the formal gardens above for years to come.

Thank You for making our dreams come true.

The coir logs (coconut fiber) were underwritten by Ecodepot and installed by sister company EQR. These logs are installed to slow and filter the runoff created by the natural topography of the site. These biodegradable logs will be  planted in April with a mix of ferns and sedges. Shrubs and trees are planted to the sides to frame the view to the upper garden. Three tulip poplars bound the area with an understory of dogwoods, carolina silver bell and a small grove of  a small tree known by any of the following names:  blue beech, muscle wood, or ironwood.

Volunteers are needed for additional planting this spring.

APRIL 5th & 12th, 9-1

                                                                                                                     More Dates to be announced.
