‘Tis the season for ‘street trees’

Empty sidewalk boxes along Eckington’s western border will be filled with trees this week as the District Department of Transportation gets underway with its fall planting project. Plots between North Capitol Street and Lincoln Road will be spruced up from Q Street to T Street NE.

If you have a barren planter outside those bounds or your tree is in need of some TLC, call 311 or use DC’s online serviceĀ center to request planting, pruning or removal. A tip from ANC commissioner Timothy Clark: To prevent crowding growing trees, avoid planting deep-rooted flowers in sidewalk boxes.
