Creekside and Greening plant 45 trees on Philip

Last weekend Creekside, the Greening of Detroit, and over 60 volunteers successfully planted 45 trees along the south end of Philip Street. The group planted several different species, which replaced trees affected by the emerald ash borer recently removed by the City.
