Our advocates testify at performance and budget oversight hearings for 3 agencies overseen by the Committee on Transportation and the Environment:

  • Department of Transportation (DDOT)
  • Department of Energy and the Environment (DOEE)
  • Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR)

Performance hearings are opportunities to comment, praise or critique agency directors and explain how the agency’s work is critical to growing our city’s tree canopy.

Budget hearings are opportunities to improve spending patterns for the District’s tree related functions.

How to Testify

To testify with Casey Trees you must first take our introductory course, Stand Up For Trees, to learn the ins and outs of tree advocacy in D.C. This course is usually offered once a year in July.
