On June 8, Jamison Adcock, president of the Aspen Hill Civic Association, received an award from the Montgomery County Civic Federation for his advocacy to prevent the MCPS bus depot being placed at the site of the Ewing Center. Pictured with Jamison (l to r) are David Rowden, Kevin Gormley and State Delegate Ben Kramer. Jamison recognized David, Kevin and Carol Petzold for their help in the successful results.
You may have noticed that some new trees were being planted in the neighborhood. Some of you may have had to remove trees or you have bare areas in your yard which need shade. In an effort to rebuild the tree canopy Montgomery county is offering to plant FREE native shade trees in your yard. Some of the trees will be up to 10 feet tall. With the warm weather over, it is the end of the planting season so if you want to order a tree it will probably not be planted until spring. You should contact http://www.treemontgomery.org now so the tree can be ordered and you are set up for early spring planting.
The county arborist makes an appointment to come survey your yard for placement of the tree and helps you select from about 50 native shade trees. The tree is planted in your yard, this is not a street tree. Before the planting Miss Utility will mark the underground utilities and shortly they will come to plant. You do not need to be at home. The tree is absolutely FREE. And if you want to you can sign up for two years of free maintenance (mulching).
