RSCA was very pleased to receive the following Sept. 14 notice from the coordinator for Arlington County's free Canopy tree program:
Dear Rock Spring,
Congratulations! We’re pleased to let you know that we have approved the planting of 13 trees in your association. Your project was one of 34 approved for funding this year.
These trees, to be planted by contractors this fall on RSCA residents' property, will both enhance the beauty and help preserve the character of our neighborhood. Some of them will also replace trees lost by residents in the July 3 micro burst storm that toppled so many large trees in our area.
A special word of thanks to RSCA Executive Board member John Roberts and RSCA resident Karen Kumm for their hard work in gathering the information needed to submit RSCA's canopy tree application.
