YNDC Plants 60 Trees Along Greater Glenwood Avenue Corridor

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

On September 28 and 29, YNDC planted 60 hearty, native urban trees on vacant lots along Mineral Springs Avenue and a number of other sites maintained by YNDC adjacent to Glenwood Avenue Corridor. Trees were planted as part of a broader effort to restore the urban tree canopy in Youngstown's neighborhoods and as part of a housing development, infrastructure, and landscape improvement plan for Mineral Springs Avenue. Since operations began in 2010, YNDC has planted over 800 trees in Youngstown's neighborhoods. Special thanks to the Idora Neighborhood Association and YNDC board members Steve Avery, Julius Bennett, Mary Danus, and Phil Kidd, who helped to plan for and plant the trees!
