Help plant trees Oct 30
Why is a tree campaign talking about native shrubs? The shrub layer is an essential part of the ecosystem, provding food and nesting sites for many animals. For other benefits such as stormwater capture, the only difference between a native tree and a native shrub is one of degree.
Free delivery inside the Beltway, or pickup at the Four Mile Run farmer's market every sunday 9am-1pm until November.
