Trees Added to Georgia Ave. Metro Area
With some area residents coping with power outages or worried about flooding yesterday, I wonder how many noticed the new ginkgo trees planted at the Georgia Avenue Metro station. Ginkgos were also planted on the wedge in front of Sweet Mango (between New Hampshire and Rock Creek Church Road).
While the trees are about the last components of the Middle Georgia Avenue Great Streets project to be installed, they were a planned part of the project from the beginning. Though I’ll admit that I have a love/hate relationship with ginkgos, I’m thrilled that we have more trees around the Metro station and Sweet Mango. Both sites lacked much needed shade in the summer months.DDOT, Great Streets, Streets and Trees comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
