A Resident Helps with the Planting 

Our block in Cabbagetown, Atlanta has become an important North/South thoroughfare for cars. We're seeing more volume -- and more speeding cars -- at the same time as our neighborhood welcomes more pedestrians, including toddlers. And our sidewalk has almost no curb...cars routinely drive onto it as if it's part of the road. Inspired by Strong Towns, neighbors came together and lobbied Trees Atlanta to line our sidewalk with Trident Maples. The trees are young now, but will provide protection to pedestrians (along with beauty, shade and storm water absorption) for years to come. Thank you for activating us, Strong Towns!
