Today’s a big day for trees, and by extension, oxygen and barren D.C. neighborhoods. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced this morning that it will plant more than 3,000 trees between now and May of 2010.

The planting will begin in Ward 7, “then Ward 8, 5, 6, 2, 1, 3, and 4,” according to the press release. The planting schedule will be posted on the website of DDOT’s Urban Forestry Administration this week.

The new tree locations were compiled with suggestions “made by residents to the Mayor’s Citywide Call Center before July 15, 2009,” according to DDOT.
