The city of Ann Arbor partnered with the Washtenaw County Conservation District to give away 10,000 free trees as part of the A2ZERO carbon neutrality plan. County residents registered to receive up to three free trees from the city to plant on their property. Planting a tree helps to increase the city’s resilience and achieve carbon neutrality goals.

            Species included white flowering dogwood, redbud, basswood/American linden, white oak and eastern white pine. All the trees were small, bare root saplings and seedlings.

            The Ann Arbor Office of Sustainability and Innovations, Leslie Science & Nature Center and Ann Arbor Public Schools all contributed to the effort.
