In 2011, we set out to reach a 40% tree canopy goal in Grand Rapids. By filling all available planting sites on City streets, we've raised our tree canopy coverage to 34%.
To reach our goal of 40%, new trees will need to be planted on private property and in our parks. To make that happen, we partnered with Friends of Grand Rapids Parks to launch the Urban Forest Project. Click below to learn more.
