    The 2011 Green Grand Rapids amendment to the City's master plan established a 40% tree canopy goal in Grand Rapids.  By filling all available planting sites on City streets we will have raised our tree canopy coverage 0.58% to 35.18%.  To reach our goal of 40%, the balance of the trees will need to be planted on private property and in our parks.

    Recognizing the need to involve private property owners in expanding the urban tree canopy, the City of Grand Rapids and the Friends of Grand Rapids Parks launched the Urban Forest Project with core funding from the Grand Rapids Community Foundation.​​
