Dear PoP


“Greetings, PoPpers.

Who manages the distribution of love to the treeboxes and little patches of green on our sidewalks? If you look West of 16th street there are cute railings, grass, and all is generally well manicured. Logan Circle is more of the same. Then there’s Columbia Heights where things are dire.

Does the city maintain these? How are some gorgeous and some are craptastic? If it is the city how do we show the ugly streets of Columbia Heights some much needed horticultural love?”

Anyone know who is in charge of fixing up treeboxes?
