Northside tornado “Treecovery”

Print

Nearly a year ago, a tornado destroyed 2,600 trees on Minneapolis’ Northside. Now the Minneapolis Park Board is partnering with organizations such as Best Buy to plant more than 3,100 trees —more trees than were lost in the storm.

Species such as Linden, Hackberry and Kentucky Coffee will once again create the urban canopy that was lost after the devastation. Ralph Seevert, who works in the forestry division of the Park Board is calling it, “Arbor Week.”

Homeowners such as Laura Kidd, who lost trees and shade in front of her house on Plymouth Ave. North is very excited.
