Tree Planting Project on Franklin Avenue


The Merle Hay, Beaverdale, and Waveland Park neighborhood associations are working with Trees Forever and the City of Des Moines on a tree planting project along Franklin Avenue between Merle Hay Road and Beaver Avenue. This is a great way to beautify our neighborhood, and help the environment.

We will be planting approximately 50 trees in the city-owned right-of-way along Franklin on Saturday, October 17. We will have more project details in the near future. Please contact Jason Pulliam by email at if you would like to help us plant trees on October 17.

Thank you to the Beaverdale and Waveland Park neighborhood associations for their contributions, and thank you to Trees Forever and the City of Des Moines’ Forestry Division for helping us coordinate this wonderful effort. We also wish to thank Amazing Grace Outreach Church and Ministries, First Federated Church, the Franklin Court Apartments, and all of the residents who have agreed to participate in this important tree planting project.
