One of my favorite loops to walk in the Carleton Arb is the one that’s adjacent to Wall St. Road and Spring Creek Road in the Upper Arb. They’ve been planting a variety of trees in the field in the middle of the loop for many years, protecting them from deer and rabbits with some nifty enclosures.
I noticed this week that a new batch of trees has been planted, and that all the grass around the plantings is dead. Anyone know the reason for killing the grass? I don’t see anything about it on the What’s Happening Now in the Arb? page.
