New Orleans is regaining its tree canopy, and other Signs of Recovery
~New Orleans is recovering its lush tree canopy, thanks to private and public replanting. Parkway Partners planted its 10,000th post-storm tree this month, and Hike for KaTREEna has planted nearly 13,000 trees, mostly crape myrtles and magnolias, since 2007. The St. Charles Avenue Association has planted almost 300 young live oaks in the past five years and will plant its last trees this spring.
