Mark Andrew wants to double tree plantings in Minneapolis


Standing on a Dean Parkway stump near Lake Calhoun, mayoral candidate Mark Andrew proposed a plan to spend as much as $500,000 in city funds to plant 5,000 extra trees in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis has recently lost about 6,000 trees because of two big storms: the 2011 North Side tornado and the 2013 Solstice storm. With the Emerald Ash Borer making an appearance in Minneapolis, Andrew said now is the time to get serious about the urban tree canopy.
