Dendro-Remediation Pilot Program

Dendro-remediation is the process by which trees are planted to reduce and eliminate toxic substances in the soil over time. Certain former industrial and some commercial sites (such as auto repair garages and laundromats) may introduce toxicity into the soil through their operations. This can create challenges in areas where the future land use will move away from industrial use. Dendro-remediation is a low cost means for treating the soil and preparing it for future use. Detroit Future City will support The Greening of Detroit in identifying sites for dendro-remediation implementation.
