It's Fall Tree Planting Season: Casey Trees to hold 22 events

Casey Trees' fall tree planting season is less than two weeks away, and we are excited about the prospects: 22 events, including six at DC schools. To prepare for the first planting, we are holding a Tree Planting class on Wednesday, October 7, and Thursday, October 8. The field training is Saturday, October 10, at Catholic University, where CUA and Casey Trees will be planting more than two dozen trees.

As you may have heard, Casey Trees has set a goal to increase the tree canopy of the District of Columbia from 35% to 40% by 2035. This will involve planting more than 200,000 trees.

If you have not taken the Tree Planting class or know somebody who would like to take it, please visit our website,, and click on Programs and Classes.

In addition, Casey Trees is registering volunteers for many of the fall plantings via the website.

Thank you for your support. We can't reach our goals without you.
