If you think you’re seeing trees sprout up overnight in Georgetown, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. By the end of December, Casey Trees and Trees for Georgetown will have planted 47 trees along the residential streets. Most will go in existing, empty tree boxes, but a couple will go in new ones.

The new trees are Nuttall oak, Swamp white oak, Parrotia persica, Sweetgum, London plane, Chinese elm, Zelkova, and Shumard oak.
