We have noticed that quite a few neighbors have gone the extra mile to spruce up the tree box in front of their home or businesses this summer. Hats off to them! Here are some examples from 13th, 12th, 10th and Newton Streets, NE. Notably, B’Cafe and Askale Cafe have nice mulching and flowers. The neighbors who put a mini picket fence around theirs are growing a herb garden in their tree box – complete with mint, basil and dill and more – pretty smart! Some neighbors have gone with care-free plants such as decorative grasses, evergreen ground cover and lavender, while others have opted to grow roses and other more elaborate set ups. For more info on tree boxes, including ideas and DC regulations, Casey Trees has a bunch of good information here.

  1. This was a GREAT post. I have a dead tree occupying about to be taken down and was wondering what to do once it is. The combo of the insperation from the pictures and the link to the regulations was ver helpful.
