The Green Corridor just got greener on December 13 with the planting of 25 native species trees between Emerson Street and  Illinois Street along the Bluemont Connector Trail.  TreeSteward volunteers joined with staff from the Parks and Natural Resources Division to plant Persimmons, Eastern redbuds, Blackgums, Hornbeams, Hophornbeams, Sycamores, Tulip poplar, Blackgum, and Oaks (Northern red, Scarlet, Swamp white, White) along the trail. The funding for the 2″ caliper trees came from the American Forest Foundation who also supplied volunteers.

Open space for games will be shaded by the new trees canopy.
