plant 20 trees at Carver Park, part of a project to add 75 new trees to three public housing estates on Cleveland’s East Side over the next 18 months. As part of this project, we’ll train public housing residents who are part of CMHA’s Green Team to plant and care for trees at these properties, which will provide them with supplemental income and perhaps inspire some of them to pursue careers in tree care. Our Community Forestry Team is also helping plant an additional 20 trees within Cleveland Cultural Gardens in Rockefeller Park. Additionally, in MidTown, Old Brooklyn, Central-Kinsman, and Detroit Shoreway-Cudell neighborhoods of Cleveland, we are working with local community development organizations to plant street trees, give away trees for planting in residential yards, and hold tree care classes. Generous support for these projects has been provided by Cuyahoga County’s Healthy Urban Tree Canopy grant program and The Cleveland Foundation.
