The Greening of Detroit held their latest tree planting in the Warrendale neighborhood this past Saturday. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend, which is a shame because I heard nothing but good things about it from everyone who was there.
Luckily, the crew from the Detroit Regional News Hub was on the scene. Their report and more than a dozen photos from the event are available here.
One of the great things about this that I did not know is that, according to the U.S. Forest Service, having healthy, mature trees on one's property adds an average of 10% to its value. Trees, therefore, are not only good for the environment, they're also good for the bottom line.
My thanks go out to everyone who was there on Saturday. I hope to see some folks at future plantings. The next one in Warrendale will be on Saturday, October 6 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
