37 Trees To Be Planted at Cromwell Bridge Park And Ride

The Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland is behind the initiative.

This year, the Federated Garden Clubs of Maryland has chosen the Cromwell Bridge Park and Ride as the location of their annual initiative to plant trees in public spaces.

Thirty-seven trees, consisting of Japanese cherries and canopy trees, will be planted in the area, according to an email from Elyssa Baxter, a past local director of the organization. The effort is funded about $3,000 to $5,000 every year through an endowment from Alice Rush McKeon, a past president of the Green Spring Valley Garden Club.

"Investing in our communities is only one small part of the Federated Garden Clubs many activities in the area," Baxter wrote.

Japanese cherries? Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the fine gesture, but why not plant native trees?

Garden Clubs traditionally worked outside native species. Their goal was to show homeowners new and unique ways to design and beautify their landscape.
