New Hope Community Street Tree Planting Part of NeighborWoods Month Celebrations

Cultivate Diversity: Mix It Up for Healthy NeighborWoods
As part of the Greening’s DTE Energy Foundation Community Planting Initiative, 45 trees will be panted to help replace diseased trees that were recently removed from this community. This community once had a thriving canopy of lush trees and was hit hard by the Emerald Ash Borer forcing the city to remove these dead trees. The Greening will partner with community residents to help re-plant their neighborhood making it once again clean and green for all to enjoy!

Date: October 18, 2008
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: 3732 Vicksberg, Detroit.
Purpose: To celebrate the benefits of trees in the places people live. During National NeighborWoods Month, we want to share the message that planting and caring for trees adds value to our communities. Trees are not just a local concern but a national one as well. Your participation in National NeighborWoods Month not only enhances your community’s health, but also furthers our collective efforts to ensure that everyone gets to live in neighborhoods with trees.
Note: National NeighborWoods Month is part of the National NeighborWoods program, an initiative to re-green North American cities from coast to coast. The National NeighborWoods initiative is a program of the national Alliance for Community Trees in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation.
