Farmington plants 26 trees with help of DTE Energy grant
Farmington just got shadier – thanks to a tree grant awarded to the city by DTE Energy Foundation.
Last year, the City of Farmington applied for and was awarded funding from the DTE Energy Foundation Tree Planting Grant Program enabling the city to plant 26 trees.
“Annually, the city evaluates the condition of trees in our parks and neighborhoods and conducts a city-wide tree replacement program,” explained City Manager David Murphy. “We are grateful for DTE and this grant.”
DTE Energy Foundation, in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Urban and Community Forestry (UCF) Program and ReLeaf Michigan, partner on tree planting projects around the state. The grant program was initiated as part of the DTE Energy’s participation in the U.S. Department of Energy’s voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas reduction efforts.
The city was awarded $3,460, which was half of the project cost.
