Washington, DC (Vocus) November 9, 2010
The deadline to apply to participate in Casey Trees’ spring 2011 Community Tree Planting (CTP) schedule is November 30.
Established in 2005, the CTP program provides trees, tools, and technical assistance to individuals and groups interested in adding 10 or more trees to private property in the District free of charge. Groups commit to watering and caring for the trees for two years following their planting. More than 2,800 trees have been planted across the District through the CTP program.
Applications for spring plantings, which will take place from March to April 2011, can be sent by fax, mail or email. Forms and other information are available on our website.
Beginning with the spring 2011 program, the National Cherry Blossom Festival will sponsor cherry tree plantings in each of the eight Wards in the District. To be eligible, your planting proposal must include at least three cherry trees and the planting must take place on public property.
