Mayor’s Greening Initiative Tree Planting
From Friends of Grand Rapids Parks:
TREES PROVIDE AMAZING SOCIAL, ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS TO OUR CITY. That is why in 2011 the Green Grand Rapids amendment to the City’s master plan established a 40% tree canopy goal. Grand Rapids has a current tree canopy cover of 34.6%, which means our community is only 5.4% shy of our goal.
