2011-2012 Tree Planting List Released
One of my joys in the fall is reviewing the annual tree planting list … and that list has finally been released. It is a little more high tech this year by including an interactive map that let’s users drill down to specific streets and neighborhoods. Not only does the map show the location of new trees and the tree species, but also existing trees and their types as well as empty tree boxes.
The write up below gives more details about the annual tree planting as well as instructions on how to access the planting list.
Streets and Trees comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
From November to May, DDOT Trees will plant at least 3,200 street trees citywide in all eight wards. The planting schedule for specific neighborhoods is subject to change due to equipment, weather, emergencies and other extenuating circumstances.
Go to our interactive Tree Planting Map to see the District tree planting locations through years 2011 to 2012. The interactive map requires no additional software but the web browser optimized for viewing is Mozilla Firefox. Mobile devices (smart phones, iPads, etc.) can access it too but requires an app. To identify the appropriate mobile app suited for your device, go to http://esri.com/software/arcgis/smartphones/app.html.
Lastly, for specific information on the types of trees planted in the District see our Street Tree Species List
