Dear PoPville – Requesting a Tree Box?

by Prince Of Petworth August 26, 2011 at 2:30 pm 15 Comments

“Dear PoPville,

We live in a row house on 4th St NW in LeDroit Park. One of the things we love about LeDroit is the amount of trees and greenery, including numerous tree boxes on the sidewalks. However, our section of 4th St is actually fairly bare with few trees or other greenery. Is it possible to request that the city installs tree boxes on our block? What would we need to do? We would be willing to maintain them ourselves – and even possibly pay for the installation – but obviously we can’t just start ripping up the sidewalk and putting in plants ourselves! Would appreciate any advice others might have.”
