City of TreesWhat stories do the trees in your neighborhood tell? Are any of them willow oaks? If so, Thomas Jefferson, who designed and executed the first D.C. street tree planting on record, would have loved them. Learn more about Washington's trees on April 22 at 7 p.m., when author Melanie Choukas-Bradley gives a lecture at the Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library entitled "City of Trees."

Choukas-Bradley will take the public on a virtual tour of Washington's botanic history and diversity. She will share pictures and stories behind the trees in Cleveland Park, the White House, the Capitol, Mount Vernon and other historic sites.
