Just received a note from Danny Flanders at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. They have embarked on a "green expansion" that emphasizes sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. The project will be complete in 2010. During the first phase, trees removed as a result of construction were all recycled; and, by planting of hundreds of young trees throughout the garden, the tree canopy will be rejuvenated, becoming healthier than before.
