The Elkhart Truth, Ind.

Apr. 9—MIDDLEBURY — ReLeaf Michigan, a non-profit tree organization, is partnering with the Town of Middlebury, St. Joseph River Basin Commission, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Davey Resource Group and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources-Urban and Community Forestry Program to plant 50 trees on Saturday, April 24, at Northridge High School and in Dawn Estates.

Trees provide many benefits to communities such as shade, improving economic vitality of commercial districts, absorbing storm water, and reducing carbon in the atmosphere, organizers said.
