Parkway Partners has free trees for planting in the public space between sidewalks and streets.  Some blocks in the Palmer Park area are trying to coordinate plantings of similar trees along the entire block.  Sounds like a great idea!

Parkway Partners is also holding its “Tree Trooper” training course in July.  Jerry Speir attended last year and report’s that it was excellent—and free.  It requires a commitment of 3 hours per day, from 4-7 pm, on four days—July 15, 17, 22, and 24.  For more info: contact  JoAnn at 620-2224 or    More info and an application to participate is available here.
