Ambitious Jersey City Parks Coalition plan is tree-rific! ... nounces_plans_to_pla.html

The Jersey City Parks Coalition announced plans today to plant 5,000 trees across the city over the next five years.

Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop joined the vice president of the coalition, Mory Thomas, in a press conference at City Hall to announce the "City of Trees" initiative. The city has committed $60,000 for each year of the five-year project. The first phase of the project, in October, will focus on planting in public parks and open spaces.

The mayor said the move is part of the city's continuing effort to increase the sustainability of the city. City of Trees grew out of the the parks coalition's annual "Big Dig" flower and tree planting initiative and the Bigger Dig 2020 project that aims to plant 2020 new trees by the year 2020.

Since taking office in 2013, the Fulop administration says it has invested more than $6 million in park renovations across the city's six wards.

"Growing our tree canopy will not only add to the urban landscape, but will be a significant tool in slowing climate change and making our community more sustainable," the mayor said. "This partnership is just one of the many steps we are taking to be responsible stewards of our city for future generations."
