Want a tree for your yard?

The District Department of the Environment has a deal running currently where they'll plant a tree for $50. Not a bad deal at all, since trees keep houses cooler in summer, warmer in winter, and look nice.

The tree deal is part of their RiverSmart Homes program, where homeowners get up to $1200 to plant vegetation or do other things to reduce stormwater runoff. There's already one of these houses on 13th Street near Columbia Road.
