It’s been a banner week for Casey Trees – we celebrated our fruitful pawpaws, toasted our hard-working volunteers and partners, helped identify 342 species in the Anacostia Watershed, and were featured in the news!
If you’ve ever been involved with a Community, School, or Residential Tree Planting program with us, then you (hopefully) know our 3-3-3 rule when it comes to mulch: a mulch circle three feet wide, three inches thick and three inches away from the trunk. Well, the Washington Post gardening columnist wrote a column all about mulch and how Americans often misuse and misunderstand what on earth to do with mulch. We were happy to help clear that up.
As a bonus, one of our arborists Marty Frye, attend the Municipal Forestry Institute, an intensive course that helps participants gain insights on how to improve urban forestry programs. Lo and behold, Marty’s experience during the program was featured in City Trees, the Online Magazine of the Society of Municipal Arborists!
