Year round, I often notice Architect of the Capitol (AOC) employees perched high in the trees above. I love the large, beautiful trees across Capitol Hill—they are longest standing witnesses of the history of this campus, from the burning of the Capitol by the British to the sculpting of the current grounds in 1872 by Frederick Law Olmsted. I was concerned that the AOC was cutting this history down – so I did some investigating.
This well-crafted essay delivers a strong message without sounding preachy. It's a pleasure to read about saving life of limb by professional arborist,_x000D_ thanks for sharing extremely useful information here.Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent job!
I love my morning walk around the Capitol. The trees are magnificent. I wish there were many more with name tags. There are many trees I would like to know more about. I am particularly intrigued by a mammoth tree on the Northwest side of the Capitol. It must have been mature at the time George Washington took office. I hope your office will undertake a project to label the magnificent trees on the Capitol grounds.
I so appreciate the beautiful trees around the Capitol. The large, beautiful, and commemorative ones tend to be labeled, but there is a small tree near the southern entrance to the House of Representatives, just west of the House Triangle, that smells absolutely amazing in fall. It's sitting in a stand of holly, but this wonderfully fragrant tree doesn't have a label. I hope you can identify it for me. Thank you for all you do!
