As part of Mayor’s Duggan’s 10 point plan to improve the quality of life for the residents of the City of Detroit, the General Services Department is leading the way in planting 10,000 trees across the 7 Districts of the City. We need your help in reaching our goal of planting 1,500 trees this Spring! Just as you assisted us with the success of the Board Up Brigade, we are asking for your assistance once again, in identifying tree planting locations in your respective communities. We need you on our Tree Planting Brigade!
What is 10,000 UP?
The 10,000 UP Tree Initiative will plant 10,000 residential trees in front of residential homes between the street and the sidewalk only. For 2018, the plantings will begin the first week of April and conclude in the month of June, for our Spring planting. We will begin planting in September and conclude in November for our Fall planting. All plantings will be conducted by a City of Detroit contractor. We will not utilize volunteers for this initiative.
If you would like to request having a tree planter you can complete the Street Tree Request Form here.
If you have any questions, please contact Angel Squalls at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 313-224-6391.
Priority is being given to fallen trees that are blocking streets or on top of homes and vehicles. The City’s forestry crews will focus on trees that were rooted on city property or blocking streets and sidewalks.
