Every fall and spring since 2003, we plant hundreds of trees at public and private schools in the District through our School Tree Planting Program.
Schools tell us where trees are desired and we work with the approved entities to get the right tree species planted in the right location to help them fulfill their goals whether it be improved storm water mitigation; adding shade; seasonal color or privacy; or just beautifying the space.
Casey Trees provides the trees, tools and technical assistance — at no cost to the group, in exchange for the school committing to watering, weeding and mulching the trees as needed for the first three years they are in the ground.
Applications for a planting date in Fall 2017 (October – December) or Spring 2018 (March – May) are due May 1, 2017.
We would love to help you or your group re-tree a site in need. Apply now!
