Bike Month and Beyond

While April is focused on our dear planet and its trees, May has a slightly different focus: bikes! May is National Bike Month and to celebrate we thought we’d recognize our two-wheeled friends. Bike folks and tree folks have more in common then you think. After all:

Not to mention we have a long and lovely history with cycling in the region. When we moved into our Brookland Headquarters we had the awesome folks at the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) provided bikes valet services and we’ve offered immensely popular Tree Tours by bike.

If you’d like to do your part to keep our streets shady for everyone, consider planting a tree on your property (for little or no cost to you!), volunteer with us, or pledge to water young trees to ensure their survival. Next time you’re stopped at a light on your bike or meandering the trails, see you if you can identify any trees around you!
