Planting for the future:
The city of Terre Haute got an environmentally-friendly face lift.
It was part of an initiative put on by the city and Trees Inc.

Volunteers planted trees around the Avenues in the city.

Various types of trees from elms to oaks were planted.

The goal of the project is to put every household in the area within one minute's walking distance of a tree.

Officials said the project will benefit the all-around look of the neighborhoods and preserve Terre Haute's tree canopy.
