About this grant

The Genesee Conservation District works closely with the City of Flint to maintain the city’s tree canopy. The organization has focused primarily on the removal of dead and dangerous street trees over the last several years. This grant will provide funding to plant approximately 250 new street trees in all nine wards throughout Flint over the next two years. Trees are essential for the survival of both wildlife and people and serve as an invaluable community resource.
