100 Trees on Broad and Bayou Road

Support the greening of Broad and Bayou Road!

Support the greening of Broad and Bayou Road!

In order to increase quality of life on the corridors, the Broad Street-Bayou Road Merchants Association has prioritized increasing landscaping along Broad and Bayou Road. Focusing on street trees, the association has identified approximately 150 locations in which new trees could be planted. The cost per tree (including the tree, sidewalk cutout, installation, and watering equipment) is $250, and planting is implemented through a partnership with Parkway Partners. Funds will be used to partner with Parkway Partners in achieving the goal of planting 100-150 trees along Broad Street and Bayou Road. Trees support the economic and environmental revitalization of Broad Street and Bayou Road!

The success of 100 Trees on Broad and Bayou Road will be evaluated through the measure of number of trees planted and cared for. In the first year, Broad Community Connections and the merchants association plan to raise at least $25,000, partner with at least 20 merchants or property owners for tree plantings, and plant 100 trees along the corridor. At our most recent volunteer day with Parkway Partners, Groundwork New Orleans, and the American Bar Association, BCC worked with volunteers to plant 43 trees on Broad Street and Bayou Road! Thanks to our program sponsors at Parkway Partners, the Joan Mitchell Center on Bayou Road, Whole Foods Market, SPROUT NOLA, and all of our individual donors!
