A big thank you to Bartlett Tree Experts for their awesome generosity!
Bartlett Tree Experts donated time, labor and treatments to save three ash trees in Ellwood Park. The trees will be treated multiple times to prevent any infestation. These trees live on a street that currently does not have any other trees excepts for these three ash trees. Although our organization is working to increase the tree canopy in this neighborhood, we also want to save any existing healthy trees. The Emerald Ash Borer is making that goal difficult and the city is estimated to lose approximately 5,000 ash street trees and a total of 212,000 ash trees in the next 5 years.

We are very grateful for your partnership and helping us
TRANSFORM BALTIMORE WITH TREES!!!
We give a big THANK YOU to P. Flanigan & Sons, Inc. for their generosity and hard work. They continue to help our organization transform Baltimore into a greener healthier city!
Flanigan & Sons, Inc. donated time, labor and equipment to remove impervious surfaces. They removed and recycled over 3,200 square feet of concrete which allowed us to plant over 100 new street trees!
One of the most difficult and expensive parts of greening a neighborhood with new street trees is generating opportunities for those trees to be planted. Concrete needs to be removed to provide opportunities for new tree wells and to enlarge existing tree wells to allow for our urban tree canopy to grow tall and strong. This is complicated hard work and we are very grateful for all P. Flanigan & Sons, Inc. has done for our organization.
Thank you for helping us TRANSFORM BALTIMORE WITH TREES!
