Plant A Tree Project

NORTH MITTEN is planting trees with your help!  The PLANT A TREE project is a continued effort to plant trees in Northern Michigan and beyond.  North Mitten pledges to plant one tree for every North Mitten participate. Run a race, go on an Adventure or take an Education Class and because of you, we will plant a tree!  Trees are planted every spring.

This effort is ongoing and updates will be posted as they become available.

Most recently, NORTH MITTEN supplied over 100 individual runners of the North Mitten Half Marathon, 10k & 5k potted (thanks to Inner-Coastal) Sugar Maple trees to take home and plant in their yards. 

 In May, North Mitten donated  100  Red Pine trees to the Grand Traverse Land Conservancy. The trees were installed by volunteers at the Lower Woodcock Lake Nature Preserve to help restore habitat, guide users toward established trails and aid in the Conservancy’s goal of implementing nature-based solutions to climate change. This 230 acre property features the entirety of a 22-acre lake, a half-mile of the Platte River and and was opened to the public in 2020 with a short trail that takes users to the lake.

PLANTED TREE COUNT to date: 279.

TREES COUNT scheduled to plant next spring: 484.  

Is your public organization in need of trees? Contact North Mitten for a possible donation. 

More to come.
