Planting Final Trees for 2013 in McElderry Park

On Saturday November 16, 2013, neighbors and TreeKeepers gathered to plant the final two trees of the 2013 season on E. Fayette St. next to William Paca Elementary School in McElderry Park, our first Trees for Public Health Neighborhood. With the planting of that 220th tree, the Baltimore Tree Trust and its McElderry Park partners — McElderry Park Community Association, Banner Neighborhoods Community Corporation, and Amazing Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church — are near the half-way point for planting the street trees that will double the local tree canopy.
