Tree Planting_1The City of Plymouth will be planting 24 trees this fall as part of their Tree City USA recognition.  Planting is scheduled for the week after Thanksgiving.

Nine new trees will be planted on South Michigan Street while North Michigan will get three new trees.  North Center Street from the 900 to 1300 block will see five trees and three new trees are planned for the 400 block of Miner Street.

One tree planted last year that died in the 100 block of Webster Avenue will be replaced and individual trees will be planted in the 100 block of South Kingston, 300 block of North Liberty and 100 block of Louisa Street.

Street Superintendent Jim Marquardt said some of the locations for the tree plantings are determined by requests while the other are selected by the city’s arborist Cameron Arnold and Marquardt travel around the city looking for locations.

The city is working to keep a full canopy of trees on North and South Michigan Streets.
