This happens a lot but I have never seen DC P&R plant new trees, at least not in the more heavily used areas of the park. There used to be a lovely big tree just to the west of the little kid swings nearest the sandbox, and another near the winding path from R Street nearest Oak Hill. Both trees offered shade that is now gone in those areas. I remember with my son watching 17 year cicadas in various stages of transformation on the trunks of these trees in 2004.
Check the dirt around the roots of fallen trees and you may well find oyster shells and other artifacts. Many trees grew on former “dump” sites in the park.
