Since 1988, ReLeaf Michigan has organized the planting of nearly 30,000 trees across the state. ReLeaf Michigan collaborates its tree plantings with neighborhood organizations, communities, service organizations and schools, sharing cost on a 50-50 basis to promote ownership of both the planting and the ongoing care. Funding from our members and sponsors allows ReLeaf Michigan to work directly with the residents and the municipality on the design and execution of the planting, as well as purchase the plant material.
Plantings are done with the help of volunteers, not contractors. The plantings provide residents within a community an educational hands-on opportunity to learn about proper plant selection, placement (i.e. the 'why' behind the 'Right Tree - Right Place' mantra), and ongoing maintenance, all while making a direct tangible difference to their quality of life.
Sponsors are provided the opportunity to participate in the plantings, gaining "face to face" contact with local residents and public officials gaining community visibility. Sponsor's logos are also displayed on a custom banner made for the event which volunteers pose around for a group photo.
