Michigan Arbor Day Alliance Tree Planting Grant
We Want to Help You Plant Trees!


The Michigan Arbor Day Alliance Tree Planting Grants are available to local units of government, public educational institutions, public libraries, non-profit organizations, neighborhood associations, churches and tribal governments.

Tree planting sites include cities and towns, school yards and conservation areas such as stream bank stabilization and habitat restoration. Through a survey, participants can provide input on where trees should be planted throughout Michigan.

Michigan Arbor Day Alliance would like to thank everyone who participated including the sponsors, ITC Holdings, Lansing Board of Water & Light,  Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Eaton Conservation District and Michigan State University Federal Credit Union.
