Nominate a Witness Tree
In preparation for a tour of these living legacies planned for next spring, City Sustainability Manager Jenny Willoughby, is seeking nominations for trees in the City of Frederick that might be included on a walking tour of “witness trees” – old specimen trees that have lived through the span of history. A wonderful example is the magnificent Dutch Elm in the center of Memorial Park by the Talley Center.
Candidate trees can be in parks, along streets, on public grounds like schools, and even on private property (though unless the tree on private property can be seen from a street or alley it may not make it on the final list). Regardless of its location in the City of Frederick, if you have a tree to nominate, please email its location and a description (and preferably the type of tree it is, though this is not required) to Jenny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share this with friends, neighbors, and other interested community groups / clubs / members!
