New Trees

May 20th, 2021

How lucky are we? We love trees, and we recently had 5 new trees installed!

Thanks to: Brian D., Pope Farm Nursery Manager with The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission - Montgomery Parks (M-NCPPC – Montgomery Parks), Horticulture, Forestry and Environmental Education Division for coordinating and the trees; and Marty K. with Kelly Landscaping for the installation!

Some fun facts: Pope Farm Nursery, situated on 92 acres in Gaithersburg/Derwood, grows many of the trees, shrubs and other ornamental plants featured in Montgomery County's 30,000-acre park system. Pope Farm Nursery has greenhouses and open-air beds and is not open to the public.

The following 5 trees were planted recently:
