This grant will enable the Greening to build capacity to manage tree harvesting at the Greening's Meyers Nursery.  The Greening will use trees from the nursery to meet goals set by the Detroit Reforestation Initiative, which proposes to plant 75,000 trees in Detroit over the next five years.  The harvesting plan will include effective, efficient, and sustainable best practices for promoting increased tree production and will be implemented by dedicated teams of graduates from the Detroit Conservation Corps program.
