Keeping Michigan Healthy - 5:05
with Melinda Jones, Executive Director of ReLeaf Michigan
Posted Oct 24, 2018
ReLeaf Michigan has worked with over 400 communities across the state. Working with community volunteers, they have planted nearly 30,000 trees on public property in Michigan's cities, townships, and villages. Unlike most other volunteer-driven tree planting organizations, ReLeaf Michigan plants trees that are already substantial in size, at least six-feet tall and 1.5" to 2" trunk caliper, resulting in much higher rates of survival.
