Bikes in Trees! ….With a Little Help From our Friends

Justin Davey Trees volunteer time to help with bike installation in ginkgo

Davey Trees volunteered to help with the bike installation in our ginkgo tree.

The Davey Tree Expert Company, Inc.  volunteered their time to help us install bikes in our ginkgo tree in front of historic Bloemendaal House last week. The bikes are wrapped in lights and will be an exciting surprise for our Dominion GardenFest of Lights visitors. We couldn’t have done it without you Davey! Thank you. Here’s a photo from Justin Brown, GardenFest Coordinator,  who helped design this year’s Dominion GardenFest of Lights theme: A Legacy in Lights: 120 Years from Bicycle Club to Botanical Garden.  Davey Trees’ support of the Garden extends beyond climbing trees. This past October the Davey Tree Expert Company sponsored the “Every Tree Tells a Story” exhibition in Ginter Gallery II as well as the Gillette Forum.
