Ann Arbor OSI - 10K Trees Initiative

Unido: mar 12, 2021 Última actividad: jul 13, 2023 iNaturalist

Urban trees provide many environmental, economic, and social benefits to the community, including: reducing stormwater runoff, improving water and air quality, increasing biodiversity and resiliency against invasive species, moderating summer temperatures, lowering utility costs, improving quality of life, and beautifying the city. Our urban tree canopy is therefore crucial to our resiliency and carbon neutrality work. But an urban tree canopy doesn’t just include the trees lining our streets, in our parks, and around our public buildings. It’s also comprised of trees on private property, from single-family homes and multi-family residential sites to private businesses and houses of worship. In recognition of this, the Office of Sustainability and Innovations has developed the 10,000 Trees Initiative with the goal of planting 10,000 new trees on private property in Ann Arbor by the year 2030.
