"We're very much committed to preserving the natural beauty of all our communities," said Diane Cox Basheer, Basheer & Edgemoore Principal. "We're so glad we can make this willow oak the cornerstone of the community's park area. In fact, we consider it the first resident of Boucher Place."

Basheer & Edgemoore coordinated efforts with City of Annapolis Chief of Current Planning Tom Smith and worked with city arborist Jan Van Zutphen and local arborist Don Zimar to select the willow oak, a tree native to the area's waterways and distinguished by its willow-like leaves and vibrant green coloring. The willow oak selected for Boucher Place is 20 years old and was transplanted from Sunshine, MD.

Attendees to the March 18th Boucher Place ceremony included Annapolis city officials as well as Basheer & Edgemoore executives, business partners and neighbors from the Eastport community. Diane Cox Basheer delivered remarks to commemorate the planting.
