New Trees Begin to Appear, Another Mature Tree Going

This mature oak in front of 3672 Park Place is coming down this week

Starting with the sad news, one of the mature trees on Park Place (between Quebec and Rock Creek Church) will be coming down. The postings indicated that work could start today and end on Wednesday. Like the trees on Princeton Place that were cut down earlier this year, this tree also has some health issues, though I’m not sure if it is termite damage or not.

But, on a happier note, some new trees have been planted in the area of Georgia Avenue and Otis Place. Of the four I noticed (two on each street) only one appears on the 2011-2012 Tree Planting List — making me wonder if the extra trees were covered in the Middle Georgia Avenue Great Streets project since they were within that section of the Avenue.

I also checked out Kenyon Street since that street is scheduled to get four new trees, but as of yesterday those trees didn’t look like they’ve been planted yet.

The area in front of the former Lion's Liquors received two new street trees
