Urban Sustainability

South Bend currently only has about half of the trees it needs. The city gets its trees from traditional nurseries at about $300 - $400 per tree. Instead, the city can use some of its hundreds of vacant lots as native tree nurseries. The idea is to plant low cost tree whips, nurture them and transplant them onto the tree lawns of the city so that the community can enjoy the ecosystem benefits. Through a public-private partnership between BCe2, The City of South Bend’s Division of Water Works, and Venues Parks and Arts, we built irrigation systems to water native tree nurseries on three vacant lots.
