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!
About the Planting
In this planting ReLeaf Michigan, DTE Energy Foundation, and Muskegon Christian School and volunteers planted 20 trees at the Muskegon Christian School in Muskegon on Saturday, September 9th, 2023. The trees planted here will create an educational resource for the school and help reduce excess water around the playground. We also planted maple trees that students can tap for maple syrup once the trees mature.

About ReLeaf Michigan
ReLeaf Michigan is Michigan's only statewide tree planting non-profit organization, working with communities and organizations throughout Michigan to protect and restore our urban tree canopies. Founded by some of the most respected arborists in the state, ReLeaf Michigan plants the Right Tree in the Right Place at the Right Time to ensure each tree thrives for generations to come.
Since 1988, ReLeaf Michigan has planted over 32,500 trees on public land with more than 650 communities and, through community workshops, increased awareness of the important benefits trees provide. Our communities are stronger when they are greener. People are healthier, the air is cleaner, infrastructure is more efficient, and the economy is stronger with trees.
