Trees planted in Point neighborhood

Continue reading below

The city recently planted 13 trees on Palmer Street in the Point neighborhood through a partnership with North Shore Community Development Coalition’s new YouthBuild North Shore program and the environmental group Salem Coastwatch. YouthBuild is a national program in which low-income youths work toward their high school diplomas or GEDs while learning job skills by building affordable housing in their communities. Members of the North Shore CDC YouthBuild program helped with the tree planting and will maintain the trees during the summer. In addition to planting trees, the goal of the partnership effort is to engage the community in order to build appreciation for the value of green spaces and the need to protect and enhance them. The trees were purchased through the TD Green Streets Program, which is funded by TD Bank and the Arbor Day Foundation and supports innovative urban forestry initiatives in underserved communities.
