• Sweet. We’re looking to try this in Arlington, too

  • How can we get this for the trees in the Columbia Heights Square and in front of Target/Children’s Place? They take a beating from pedestrians.

      The plaque says it’s a DDOT/Georgetown BID project. So, I’d start by contacting DDOT and the Tivoli North Business Association.

    I think it looks great, and I’m glad they put the little plaque there to explain, because I’m sure a lot of people instantly freak out and think that it’s asphalt.

      Just saw this today for the 1st time. Yes, the explanation plaque is a good idea. Great solution for crowded areas where plantings could never make it (mentioned below.) Ugly? Not as ugly as mud and litter.

    well, umm, yeah. sure looks pretty ugly, though.

    this same product was also used on a tree iin front of Matchbox on 14th St (without a plaque). It has been there for at least a year. maybe 2.
