Grand Q St. Elm Ailing

IMG_1853[1]

 

Georgetown’s Q St. east of Wisconsin is home to a priceless collection of stately American Elm trees. The towering trees have mostly escaped the devastating Dutch Elm disease, which is an extremely rare thing.

Sadly, one of the particularly tall elms just east of 30th in front of Cooke’s Row looks to have died (or is well on its way). Street trees die all the time in a urban environment like Georgetown, but to lose a rare giant like this one is particularly sad.

Let’s just hope that whatever afflicted this one doesn’t attack its neighbors.

    It’s marked for removal. I love that block, the treescape is one of the best in the city.
