TREES Inc., in partnership with the Terre Haute Parks Department, planted 77 trees in Deming Park. These trees are to supplement the replacement of those destroyed by high winds on July 13, 2016.
This project was followed up with a tree planting of 77 trees on the recently completed section of Margaret Avenue from 7th St. to 13th St. In addition to the Margaret Avenue project was a planting of 23 trees on Ohio Boulevard.
In 2017 TREES was awarded two grants to plant 120 trees from N. 25th St. east to and including the Liberty Village grounds on Elm St. These grants were from Duke Energy and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The planting took place on November 4, 2017.
TREES was awarded an Indiana Department of Natural Resources grant in 2018 to plant 100 trees on Harding Blvd. from Helen to Margaret Ave. and on S. 6th Blvd from Helen to Margaret Ave. The trees are being planted to address a storm water runoff problem.
The Nov. 9, 2019 tree planting project consisted of 100 small trees along Brown Blvd. from Locust north to Maple and along Locust from 25th to Brown. A few were planted on Brown south of Locust. These trees were planted to supplement trees previously planted in the area and to replace those that had died. Most of the trees were native species to Indiana with the Nuttall Oak, a native to the south central U.S., the exception.
