Park Inventories: A Photo Montage

At Casey Trees we know it’s important to have an understanding of which trees are growing in our city. Because as author W. Edward Deming famously said, “You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”

In partnership with the Urban Forestry Administration, and thanks to some great volunteers, we have already very collected data on trees in Meridian Hill Park and Upper Senate Park!

Check out the photos from the inventories:
