City crews have already planted a number of new trees Downtown. Mitchell says the crews will take the process to the major roadways and neighborhoods.

Also, the city is planting fruit trees on Sunday from 10-to-1 at Brooklawn Park. Officials say its a volunteer effort and the public is invited to join in.
