Multi-Municipal Shade Tree Planting Project


Multi-municipal Shade Tree Planting

This project is funded by ECGRA, the Erie County Planning Department through the Erie County Landfill Trust fund and participating municipalities. With the help of PA SeaGrant and the City of Erie Arborist the EACOG has planted over 400 shade trees in muncipalities in Erie County. Trees are planted on city streets, boulevards, municipal  property and parks. To date, nine municipalities have benefited from this program. Once the weather breaks we will begin to plant again with approximately 200 more trees expected to be planted. In total, at least 12 municipalities will participate and over 600 trees will be planted.
