Hands on 8 Mile  Plants 18 Trees in Royal Oak Township Park

Despite chilly temperatures and pouring rain, volunteers from several youth groups, a few devoted friends, and WAM (Weekend Alternatives for Misdeamors),  gathered on October 14th to replace 18 trees that had been destroyed by the Ash Borer several years ago in a park in Royal Oak Township, one of 8 Mile Boulevard's partner communities.

The project was part of Hands on 8 Mile, 8MBA's beautification/cleanup/neighborhood-building project that had traditionally been an annual event.  However, due to the generous donation of the 18 trees by DTE Energy Foundation through ReLeaf Michigan, 8MBA was able to do this second Hands on 8 Mile event this Fall.

In addition to DTE Energy Foundation, 8MBA would like to thank Marvin Pettway of ReLeaf, Redico, Gil Christowski, Bill Whitmer, and WAM.  We would have never got those trees in the ground without you!
