Up With Trees is kicking off the planting of more than 2,200 trees along the I-44 corridor. Over the next two years, Up With Trees will plant more than 2,200 trees, 92,000 square feet of wild flowers, and 27,000 square feet of landscaping along I-44 between Riverside Dr. and Yale Ave. Partnering with the Tulsa Beautification Foundation, this project is the single largest Up With Trees project to date, and will improve one of the most visible corridors in all of northeastern Oklahoma for the benefit of all who live, visit, own property, and work in the greater Tulsa area.
More than 20 tree species will be planted including Crape Myrtle, Loblolly Pine, Bald Cypress, several varieties of Oak, and more! These trees provide a noise barrier for the surrounding neighborhoods, increase the overall economic value of the area, and provide environmental and health benefits to the Tulsa community. With the many benefits these trees and the landscaping will provide, Up With Trees invites fellow Tulsans to join in the planting! Plantings will occur on Saturday, November 14th, Saturday, November 21st and Saturday, December 5th from 9:00am – 12:00pm. Everyone is welcome to join us in beautifying the I-44 corridor! Up With Trees and its Board of Directors is looking forward to planting the first 30 trees of this project on Saturday, November 7th starting at 9am.
