1,500 target with 85% in historically underserved neighborhoods


General Services exceeded the target of 1,500 trees by planting 1,557 trees with over 85% in under-served neighborhoods as referenced in the Urban Forestry Master Plan. 1,338 trees were planted in under-served neighborhoods, exceeding the goal of 1,275.

Next Steps

General Services will continue to prepare during this pre-planting season by identifying tree planting locations and meeting with community partners and the non-profit Keep Durham Beautiful to reach our goal of 1,500 trees during the 2019/2020 planting season.
