July 2013RMA welcomes to its green community three Embassy Row owners in the 2000 block of Mass Ave, who have taken over the care of young, at-risk street trees. Our Treekeepers are helping these owners, such as by loaning green water bags. By actively caring for trees, these owners beautify their space. A healthy line of maturing trees will help this whole block, where thousands of people daily use the Georgetown U and MetroBus stops and popular Embassy Row hotel.
You may learn more about our new "green" friends below the photos.
