We discussed the cultural and economic value of the agrihood — and its impact on Detroit — in April. The Greening of Detroit continues, with the City’s forestry division joining the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, the Motown Movement and others in transforming the physical landscape and urban experience in Detroit.
The City announced last month that it would plant 10,000 trees over the next three years.
Detroit resident Jerome Christian:
When I look at trees I look at, you know, like in the summertime when trees can shade your home and that can conserve energy. It can shade your grass, it can conserve water. And the overall scenic beauty of trees… it can, I guess, increase your property value.
