YNDC Completes Spring Planting of 185 Trees Across the City

Wednesday, May 29, 2024. 

On May 23, YNDC's TreeCorps completed its spring planting of 185 two inch caliper trees. Trees were planted in multiple neighborhoods including: the greater Glenwood Avenue area, Boulevard Park, Powerstown, Buckeye Plat, Lincoln Knolls, Wick Park, Lansingville, Gibson Heights, Arlington Heights, and Mahoning Commons. More than 400 trees will be planted in the fall.

Mahoning Valley TreeCorps is an initiative led by YNDC, Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership, Youngstown CityScape, the Healthy Community Partnership, along with many community partners. TreeCorps will restore and sustain the urban tree canopy in the cities of Youngstown Ohio, and Warren Ohio, in order to improve health, and make the urban forest accessible to all. Additional community partners involved in this effort include the Cities of Youngstown and Warren, the Trumbull and Mahoning County Land Banks, Plant Ahead Ohio, Community Corrections Association, Choffin Career and Technical Center, Treez Please, Mill Creek MetroParks, Trumbull County MetroParks, Trumbull Soil and Water Conservation District, along with many neighborhood groups and community organizations.

This project is made possible through a grant from the USDA Forest Service. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
