In keeping with today's landscaping standards, the sidewalks come with what look like oversize tree cuts. This week tree-planting crews began filling the holes with nice-sized saplings.
Up along East Franklin St. (highway parlance would have called it Service Road X in days gone by) pairs of Hornbeam and Cherry have recently been planted. Not just along the sidewalks, but in the berms and down the embankments along the edge of I-95.
Now the tree planters are moving down the upper restored sections of Clifford (at right) and Friendship. We assume that the tree cuts in the walks down the "hill", below Chestnut, will be leafing out soon, as well.
And, come Spring 2015, the District will show off with its own display of cherry blossoms.
