Detroit Green Corridor Initiative

October 28, 2014

Detroit Future City partnered with The Greening of Detroit to plant more than 300 trees along the Southfield freeway and the surrounding neighborhood. The projected annual benefits of these trees as they mature are:

– 1,018,000 gallons of storm water removed each year (equal to 1.5 Olympic-size swimming pool)

– 220,925 pounds of CO2 sequestered per year (equal to removing 18 cars from the road)

– Environmental Service Value = $14,425 per year
