Urban Phoenix Project Tree Planting Project

On Saturday, May 20th, over 20 hard-working volunteers came out to help the Urban Phoenix Project plant five trees on the east side of 4th Avenue between W Fillmore St and W McKinley St. The Urban Phoenix Project received $1,000 funding from the Love Your Block Phoenix mini-grant program to plant these trees in downtown Phoenix to raise awareness around the value of trees planted, increase the walkability and livability of downtown Phoenix, and become a small step towards realizing Phoenix’s Tree & Shade Master Plan that aims to increase the shade canopy coverage for Phoenix. This project was made possible with support from the non-profit Trees Matter and the City of Phoenix Streets Department, Neighborhood Services Department, and Parks and Recreation Department.
