West side leading to playground with no morning shade in 2013.
October 2013 was just the first step in reforesting Tarleton Park in Alexandria. TD Bank employees under the guidance of TreeSteward volunteers planted 30 trees – and provided enough funds for weekly summer watering for two years. You can read about the event in the following blog post. Thanks to the support of the neighborhood and TS Bonnie Petry who coordinated the watering, these young trees are thriving. In July 2016, TreeStewards toured the park to record the growth of trees. Check out the before and after photos!

TreeStewards of Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia, are trained volunteers who work to protect, preserve, and enhance urban tree canopy through public education and volunteer activities such as planting, pruning, and caring for trees.
