“Dear PoPville,

In the last few days a bunch of trees have been planted in an area of rock creek park that has been used as an informal soccer field for many years. This field is the open grassy area along Piney Branch just north of the Woodner.

I’d be interested in finding out more about the thought process for selecting this area for new trees. Were there any consultations with the public about the best use for this space. Is also like to know what your readers think about planting the trees in an area that has organically become a popular area for public use.”
