Click on Detroit: Massive initiative reaches 1-year mark as Detroit aims to plant 75K trees, create new jobs
This initiative recently received a $3 million award to help fund their mission, and this fall, they put another 5,500 trees into the ground.
Detroit’s reforestation manager says the Detroit tree equity partnership isn’t limited to one area.
“Those trees are being planted along our corridors like here along West 6 Mile Road,” said City of Detroit Reforestation Manager Whitney Smith. “We’re also doing neighborhood plantings. The city still has our residential tree-planting request, so if you want to request one tree in front of your home, we will fulfill that need as well.”
