The Urban Forest Project was launched in 2011 by Friends of Grand Rapids Parks, the City of Grand Rapids, and the Grand Rapids Community Foundation, to work toward the Green Grand Rapids 40% tree canopy goal. Every tree planted and cared for helps to create greener neighborhoods, intercept stormwater, conserve energy, remove air pollutants, and reduce and store CO2.
