Adopt-a-Tree Well for Fall!

Adopt-A-Tree-Well Fall Program

Let’s make Downtown Dearborn Beautiful this Fall!

Your business or organization can sponsor a tree well in Downtown East or West Dearborn to plant or decorate for Fall!
A tree well is the small patch of ground around the city trees lining our main streets.
You can easily participate in this community program by simply identifying which tree wells you would like to adopt and maintain within either Downtown District. You provide Fall plants or decorations, and we will recognize your efforts with a customized plaque, as well as in our promotion e-newsletter and on our social media.

Here’s how your business or organization can participate:

  1. Choose a tree well to sponsor.
