Urban Forestry Planting
Each fall and spring the Traverse City Parks and Recreation Department completes a tree planting project to supplement the urban forest. A majority of the trees planted are along the street in the public right of way. Many of the trees that are planted also replace a tree that was removed during the year prior. Each potential location is assessed to determine if a tree could survive in the space available to it. Once a planting location is determined, the species is selected depending on a variety of factors. Please see the link below for more information with regard to tree planting.
