    This website does look absolutely fabulous! Thanks for creating it!

    I’d like to make a few comments, based on a quick look through the Native Tree Guide. First, it would be great if you could promote the preservation or transplanting of offspring of local native trees in preference to purchasing trees from nurseries that may source them from far away from Takoma Park. Even if the nursery species are native to our area, they may have different genetics or may be of different subspecies from our local ones. I believe there is value in preserving our local gene pools.

    Second, the bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) is included in the list. However, I’m not aware of it being native to our area. I’ve heard that the closest native population is in coastal Delaware or coastal Maryland.

    Finally, the guide mentions (I think in the introduction) that there are few native fruit trees, with red mulberry being one of them. I think there’s actually an abundance of native edible fruit trees–black cherry, pawpaw, plum, chokeberry, serviceberry, American persimmon, just to name a few.

    The website is very easy to use and I found it very informative. I loved linking to tree descriptions however the photos were not so great. The TP tree guide is clear and well written.
