Even though our spring planting season is over, this doesn’t mean D.C.’s trees don’t need your help. Summer is the season that newly planted trees are most vulnerable, and by volunteering at one of our upcoming tree care events or learning how to properly remove non-native invasive species, you can ensure the well-being of D.C.’s burgeoning trees.
