    Whenever a tree is planted, the community gets just a little bit safer (research proves that) and healthier. This spot will be beautiful as the trees mature – thank you.

  2. As we move forward with planting trees – especially ones not on a right of way let’s consider planting trees in an Urban Food Forest design using permaculture principles. We provide green spaces capturing rainwater and carbon as well as reducing heat island effect and improving air quality and we add to food security. Maintenance issues can lead to blue/ green jobs.

    Thanks for covering this story. I would just like to give a shout out to one of the new businesses in Uptown Crossing referenced by Stamper during this media event: Tricklebee Cafe at 45th & North (One World Everybody Eats/Pay What You Can restaurant model). Positive changes are happening for Uptown Crossing and surrounding neighborhoods.
