November 17th marks the sixth planting event in the Casey Trees-Crestwood partnership, which intends to renew the tree canopy in the Crestwood neighborhood by 2020. Crestwood is bordered by Rock Creek Park on three sides and is home to many of the canopy and understory trees that are Park natives. By partnering with with Casey Trees community members hope to enhance the connection to the Park, replace canopy trees that have died or been destroyed, and enhance the environmental quality of the neighborhood. Volunteers will work with committed Crestwood residents to add 30 shade trees to this community.
