Our Green Community
Our Growing Network
Restore Mass Ave helps those on Embassy Row “green” their embassy, residence, or institution.
We arrange tree plantings at exceptionally reasonable prices to embassies and other property owners along Embassy Row. We help foreign missions work with neighboring embassies, US residents and institutions. We provide advice on trees other green measures to create a continuous, park-like streetscape that adds beauty and value to our shared Grand Avenue. We give recognition to those who participate our program.
Haiti Embassy Awarded 9-11 Survivor Tree
Our group has worked for years on green projects with the Embassy of Haiti at 2311 Massachusetts Avenue. Haiti was one of the first embassies to help us water nearby street trees, for example. The Embassy hosted our 10th anniversary reception in May 2017.
Last fall, the National 9-11 Memorial & Museum offered Haiti a seedling grown from a Callery pear tree that miraculously survived the fall of the Twin Towers in 2001. (Museum photo on right). This award honors Haiti’s long recovery from the 2010 earthquake, the largest natural disaster in history. The 9-11 group offers these to communities “facing and overcoming tragedy.”
We are glad to assist the Embassy of Haiti with planting and protecting the Survivor Tree seedling when it arrives in early spring. Stay tuned!
