Frogtown has less tree canopy on private land than any other city neighborhood. The energetic Tree Frogs are working to change that. This volunteer group has planted nearly 500 new trees in front and back yards, and on public spaces in Frogtown. Our goal is 1,000 new trees by 2025!
Donated trees are kept over the summer months in our innovative community gravel bins, at the Tree Park on Dale Street and Lafond Avenue.
In collaboration with the city's forestry unit and the US Forest Service, we planted 72 trees in 2020. By adding to the tree canopy of our community, we've helped improve the environmental health of residents and visitors.
Frogtown Green has planted a variety of trees throughout the community. Genetic variation in tree populations is vital to long-term survival, growth and viability, particularly in urban landscapes. Genetic diversity also enhances resistance to stressors, such as pests, diseases, and the effects of global warming.
We've planted maple, oak, apple, cherry, linden, honey locust, aspen, and river birch varieties, among others. Please explore the list and locations of our tree plantings from 2012 to 2020 below.
