About the Tag
ReLeaf Michigan and the DTE Energy Foundation feel strongly about education related to planting and maintaining trees. Tree ID tags were created and placed on DTE-funded trees to further engage communities. Scanning the tag QR code brings people to a planting specific webpage like this one! More information can be learned about the particular planting and the trees planted. Thank you for checking it out!
