I joined the Board of McLean Trees Foundation (MTF) in 2013. It is impressive to see that this organization is responsible for most of the trees in the public areas of central McLean. Although other organizations, like Fairfax ReLeaf, operate in Fairfax, only MTF is active and interested specifically in McLean. The Board members are highly qualified. I am a Master Gardener, as is the Chair. We also have a Master Naturalist, a Tree Steward, and members active in the business community. The Board members are devoted to the tree projects and receive absolutely no personal gain, other than satisfaction from the MTF's achievements. Most of the Board members are donors to MTF and also contribute their time and effort to tree planting activities. I have helped bring the MTF into the digital age by designing the MTF logo, letterhead and making its website. This year we received a grant for the Neighborhood Tree Program and are working on publicizing MTF and expanding the volunteer and donor lists.
