Tudor Place Receives Donation of 22
Trees from Casey Trees!

Washington, D.C. - On October 16, 2010 Casey Trees will plant 22 new trees at Tudor Place Historic House and Garden in the heart of the Georgetown historic district. Over the years, many historic trees have been lost due to disease, injury, or age on the five and a half acre property. After careful research of written and photographic documentation, many of these trees will be replanted by Casey Trees. This donation is very significant as each of the trees will be 2" caliper trees, resulting in a gift that is worth thousands of dollars!
Executive Director Leslie Buhler notes "The restoration of this important historic landscape is greatly advanced by this generous contribution from Casey Trees."
Trees to be planted include: Tea Crabapples; Carmine Crabapples; White Fringe Tree; Redbuds; Incense Cedar; Black Hills Spruce; Serviceberry; Dogwood; Yellowwood; White Pine; Sassafras; Copper Beech; American Elm; and Chestnut Oak.
Tudor Place and Casey Trees are looking for volunteers to help plant these trees. The planting on Saturday, October 16, 2010 will be at Tudor Place Historic House & Garden 1644 31st St NW, Washington, DC. Registration/Check in will be at 8:45 a.m. and the planting begins after remarks and a safety briefing at 9:00 a.m.
Lunch is provided for volunteers! No tree planting experience is needed. The tree planting event is expected to conclude at 1 pm and will be held rain or shine. House tours will be available after the planting, but you must reserve your spot in advance by emailing sbouchard@tudorplace.org. Volunteers can register through the Casey Trees website, or by going to the volunteers link at www.tudorplace.org.
