In spring of 2020 we completed the Low Line Green which is a reclamation of one and a half acres east of the Flood Wall. The space is capable of capturing and filtering 148,000 gallons of polluted rainwater annually, and will help to improve stormwater quality. We planted thousands of native plants, trees, and shrubs to provide year round beauty, shade, and pollen and nectar for wildlife.

Now, in 2022, Capital Trees continues its decade-long work to build public landscapes and enrich the community. The past two years have revealed the importance and power of urban greenspace, and highlighted the need for our work. As we pursue our mission, we are taking Capital Trees to a different level to meet that demand. 

Our most significant accomplishments this past year have been internal, as we move from a largely Board-run organization to a more sustainable model where the Board governs and the staff operates. We took the bold step of hiring our first full-time Executive Director, Shelly Barrick Parsons, in May of 2021 and our first Program and Outreach Manager, Lisa Trapp, in September of 2020.
