Ann Arbor is launching a significant new replanting program this fall to add roughly 1,000 new trees every year.
The initiative begins half a dozen years after the die-off of once-plentiful ash trees.
City officials say they'll use aerial photos to identify the more pronounced holes in Ann Arbor's tree canopy and concentrate on those spots.
Street trees will be planted across the city, said Kerry Gray, urban forest and natural resources coordinator. City employees will likely do the work, but details are still being worked out"
