  • Spring 2015 West Side Tree Planting
  • Newport's West Side was identified by NKY Urban and Community Forestry Council (NKYUCFC) as being in very significant need of an increase in tree canopy ( Tree canopy is an indicator of a lot of issues urban areas are facing today - poor air quality, flooding and water pollution, heat stressed areas, public health (both mental and physical) . NKYUCFC granted the City of Newport $8000 for trees. Additional funds were solicited from grants and charitable organizations resulting in $20,000 for the project.
  • Tree Revitalize, the tree committee of the East Row Garden Club in partnership with the West Side Citizens Coalition managed the project.
  • 125 trees were planted in Newport's West Side by 90+ volunteers at a cost to property owners of $25 each
  • Fully and generously supported by the City of Newport
