The 2013 event, which is the primary source of funding for the trees that appear in local tree boxes each year, was hosted May 8 by Shelly and Bruce Ross-Larsen. A new initiative called GIFT, "Georgetown Initiative for Family Trees," will allow Georgetowners to "tag" a tree with the name of an honoree to "root the people and businesses of the community to the trees that shade our streets." Each tree will be tagged with a scannable QR code, providing information on the type of tree, the date it was planted, the tree's honoree and a story about why the tree was selected in that person's name.
